The secrets of the human voice by leading world expert, Dr. Jean Abitbol!

We possess a priceless and powerful treasure: our voice. The Power of the Voice is a scientific and personal voyage of exploration into the vocal instrument that each of us possesses without necessarily understanding it or knowing the true measure of its power.

An alchemy between body and mind, instrument of persuasion and charm, our voice is the reflection of our personality. It can bring us fortune or cause our loss. It fascinates scientists, philosophers, doctors, and those interested in caring for the voice. From the voices that seduce us to the voices that lead us, the author unveils the secrets of the voice and its power of attraction. How is the human voice formed? How does our voice change according to our emotions, situations, and conversations? How do politicians, performers, teachers, or seducers develop the power of their voices?

Enriched with numerous delightful anecdotes, including some about celebrities and politicians, the reader will better understand how the voice can inspire attraction and even repulsion.

This fascinating read will be of interest to people who use their voice often, including singers, actors, teachers, comedians, journalists, politicians, lawyers, and anyone with an interest in the human voice.

Reviews

"In this book you will read why Lauren Bacall's voice was so alluring, why Orson Welles' report of Martian Invasion was so convincing or, in a televised debate, how the quality of the voice and delivery can prove more decisive than the content of the speech. . . . The preface tells us this will appeal to anyone who is a regular voice user, whether singer, actor, teacher, politician, lawyer etc. Certainly its appeal goes way beyond those who practice laryngology and it deserves to be very successful and appeal to a general readership."
Liam M. Flood, FRCS FRCSI Middlesbrough UK, in the Journal of Laryngology & Otology (May 2018)
