Here’s what top VO professionals are saying about
The Art of Voice Acting!

In my view, Jim has written THE definitive book on professional voice acting. If you want to be a successful voice actor, LEARN from Jim, TRAIN with him, and above all READ THIS BOOK!
Mel Hall - Executive Producer-Director, Voice Actor, Cinira

A good coach and a good book can point you in the right direction and get you asking the right questions.  In my opinion, the right book is James Alburger’s The  Art of Voice Acting.  Buy it, read, and re-read it; you won’t regret it.
Harlan Hogan - Professional Voice Actor
(from his book: VO: Tales & Techniques of a Voice-over Actor)

I've been in broadcasting for 40 years, and in spite of my age have done quiet well in the voice-over biz. I recently read your book and found it to be, in my opinion, about the best there is.
Jerry Houston - Professional Voice Actor

Required reading at my weekly Denver Voiceover Class is James’ classic text, The Art of Voice Acting. Students at The Acting Studio get lots of value from his artistic guidelines and marketing tips. What a deal!
Bill Smith, Director of The Acting Studio (Denver, CO)

The Art of Voice Acting


"I started using The Art of Voice Acting when I was teaching a Voice and Diction class as my acting school, and after reading [the] book, I restructured it into a "Voice Acting" class. The amount of free web links inside is worth more than all the Voice Acting books on the market. I understand why it's considered the bible of Voice Acting. I have recommended it as "The" Voice Acting resource for my students and fellow aspiring voice actors ever since. I have [this] book to thank for the foundation of my training. Thanks Jim for inspiring me to pursue my Voice Acting dream!"
     David Letendre, voice actor and coach
