This is a comprehensive guide to the full exploitation of the voice, with exercises for relaxation and breathing, clarity of diction and vocal flexibility, and conversations with seven well-known speakers - Lord Shinwell, Lord Mancroft, Clive Jenkins, Marjorie Proops, Richard Baker, Patrick Campbell and Dr Mervyn Stockwood.
