Anatomy of Voice by Blandine Calais-Germain and François Germain

The book, Anatomy of Voice by Blandine Calais-Germain and François Germain covers all parts of the body that create and are in use when making a sound with our voice.  You'll even learn how posture, standing properly and proper tongue position, play a role in making sound and this book is even great for helping those who sing, provide speeches, teach and do plenty of speaking all day long. There is no doubt that this book really can help you achieve a perfect understanding of the body's anatomy and how to properly use it to provide sound for everyone to hear clearly. Plus, with many of the illustrations and features of the body shown inside, you actually get an anatomy lesson of the body.
Basically, when I seen the cover and thought about the benefits to understand how to speak and possibly sing better by understanding the voice and what is used and works together to create it, I figure this book may be interesting. After all, learning to speak better and maybe sing even better can be a good thing, since the voice is used very often. So when I got to reading a little bit, I actually found it to be helpful and motivated to test some of these movements to help and improve my speaking experience. I am surprised that I never really understood how standing and positioning every thing can make a difference. 
So far, I am learning the benefits of keeping the head balanced, the key purpose of the tongue and so much more!  I know that many books are great to help with learning about the voice, but many don't explain the muscles or the organs and parts of the body that work together, while you are trying to speak, sing or make some type of noise. Instead, they just help you understand how to perfect it and get your best voice spoken. However, this really takes the time to describe in each chapter/section the body and what is inside working while you are making a sound.
Some parts that you'll read about is the skeleton of the voice, generator, the larynx, the vocal tract, and vocal terms. So once you know the parts of the body that work to give you the voice you speak or sing with, you'll than know how to use it better. Finally in my opinion, this book is very useful and helpful. It has illustrations to give you guidance, and much needed information about the voice we use daily. Therefore, if anyone interested in learning about the voice, how to use it and perform better or even if you teach a singing class or just want to learn to project your voice to an audience, than this is something you should take a look at!
