Most people don't like the sound of their voice - but for some, their vocal and communication habits are holding back professional success. Typical problems include: voice pitches too high, nasal and gravelly, mumbling, swallowing of words, speech too soft - people constantly asking to speak up, speaking too fast, difficulty making small talk, difficulty making eye contact, stage fright and interrupting others. Other books address some of these issues but are not grounded in speech science and professional expertise. With dozens of years under her belt as a Ph.D. speech therapist and pathologist, Carol Fleming can get every reader to the right solutions quickly.

The Serious Business of Small Talk Becoming Fluent, Comfortable, and Charming You walk into a room full of strangers and you immediately freeze—wait, no you don't. Instead, you start some light, easy banter with the group of people closest to you. Then you move on to another group. At the end of the meeting or the conference or the party, you leave with a whole new set of connections. It's not an impossible dream. No communication skill is more important in the world than small talk, says communication coach Carol Fleming. It's how you negotiate the beginning of all relationships. What is more, Fleming reveals, contrary to what most people say, they actually love small talk. Very few of us don't enjoy chewing the fat, shooting the breeze, or otherwise catching up with loved ones and old friends. That's small talk! It's just the one little bit about strangers that throws people off. Small talk with strangers is a skill, one Fleming has taught to scores of avowed wallflowers. She covers the inner and outer aspects—from the right attitude to how to dress, move around, and introduce yourself. Most importantly, she lays out a series of simple, memorable conversational strategies that make it easy to go from “Nice weather we're having” to a genuine, rewarding give-and-take. Carol Fleming won't tell you what to say. Believe it or not, you've already got what you need inside you. She merely provides the keys to unlock it.

Start with this thought: Your success in your professional, financial, and personal life depends to a great extent on your ability to articulate. I first learned the truth and power behind that statement when I lived in a grimy coal-mining and steel-making town in Pennsylvania, where it was clear that articulate professionals were more successful than the less articulate miners and mill workers. My education continued years later at the top levels of government, business, and academe where I observed power brokers and decision-makers use their considerable skills with language to think clearly, arrive at logical decisions, and convey those decisions clearly to others. And over the years, I saw that my happiest friends and associates were able to communicate clearly with spouses and others with whom they enjoy close relationships. "In short, my intuition told me that language is the root cause of a more fulfilled life. Along came Pete and this book." - John Yasinsky, Former CEO, GenCorp

Have you ever heard your voice played back on a tape recorder? The first time you heard it, you probably said, “That's not me.” The following thought was probably, “Do I sound like that when I talk?”And, the third silent thought was,“Better do something about it quick!”But, what to do? How do you start improving your voice? The best solution is to take lessons from a voice teacher. This, however, costs money and takes time, both precious commodities. If your career is in the acting profession, this is the only solution. But, if you are not directly connected with the entertainment world, you will not want to go to such lengthy measures. Having a good speaking voice is an asset in any profession, and nothing is more revealing about your personality than your voice. What does the voice do? It reveals all the emotions inherent in man: anger, frustration,happiness, contentment, etc. Actually, the impression you make on other people is not done with words, but how you speak them. The most important word in the human language today is “communication.”Without it, enemies are made, friendships broken, business lost. When the phone was invented, the bulk of communications was taken from the hands and given to the voice. Yet, while children are taught their grammar and ABC's in school, the art of elocution is ignored. Now, you have reached a point in your life when you realize something is missing, and, being a mature person, you naturally want to correct this lack.“Do it yourself”has become the national password, so your problem is finding a book that is easily understood, practical, and interesting. Look no further, you are holding it in your hands. This book was written by a woman who has made her living by properly using her voice. Marjorie Hellier, actress, singer, lecturer and tutor with twenty-five years' experience in the handling of voices of every age and type, vividly describes her individual (and successful) approach to the art of voice control. Marjorie Hellier has set down all the pertinent facts necessary for improving your voice, and has done it in such a delightful manner, you will find yourself eager to improve. With her simple instructions and illustrations, it will take only a short time for you to notice a remarkable change in the quality of your voice. If you don't believe it, go back to that revealing tape recorder after you have thoroughly digested and applied the principles taught in this book, and hear the pleasing changes with your own ears.
