Breath in Action looks at the significance of breath to human life - not just the simple fact that if we stop breathing, we die, but also the more subtle ways in which our breath interacts with our voice and our being. Written by experts in vocal and holistic practice, the book is divided into four sections: Breath and the Body; Breath and the Mind; Breath and Holistic Practice; Breath and Performance.

It offers the latest theories from a variety of disciplines on how we can be taught to breathe better so as to communicate better, act or sing better, feel better, live better. Combining theory with practice, many of the chapters also offer clearly laid out breathing exercises and techniques.

Interdisciplinary in its focus, Breath in Action adds to specialist knowledge in the performance field, whilst also offering enlightening information for those interested in therapeutic and healing processes, movement, and voice and speech sciences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The mystery of breath continues to intrigue us. We still do not know all the answers but as Judylee Vivier says, there is nothing really new: "The basic principles are definitive but there are many doors through which we can enter the same room". On this basis, this is an intersting addition to any practitioner's bookshelf. -- Voice Matters
This is an inexpensive and fascinating book for those interested in finding out more about what influences the theatre voice practitioner. -- Speech & Language Tharepy in Practice
Breath in Action offers a rich tapestry of approaches to effective breathing that occasionally contrast, but mostly complement each other... The writers of Breath in Action are literally and figuratively filled with inspiration. May their wise words enlighten theatre artists for years to come. -- American Theatre
