    Fantastic advice for narrators entering the field This book is gem for all narrators, especially voiceover artists entering audiobook narration as their new field. Barbara offers honest, unbiased, and a clear roadmap for success. It won't come overnight, only after many years of hard work, systematic training, and technique mastering. I'll recommend it to my fellow Spanish teachers and voiceover artists

    Good introduction, helpful references, a quick read Rosenblatt speaks from vast experience (500 Audio Books!) and provides the basic information needed to get started in Audio book narration. I appreciated the useful resource links for industry news and dialect work. This book is short and to the point, great for someone that is contemplating venturing into this field and is looking for a short introduction.
