‘I wish I had read a book like this when I was starting out.…In the book you are about to read, you will read about the voice on a very practical level – how it works, how to protect it and how to approach a professional career. Especially for singers just starting out, I think this book is invaluable. For anyone who needs their voices strong and free, which really is everyone, there is something to learn here.…I know I'll keep a copy in my own dressing room.’ From the Foreword by Melissa Errico

'Wow!  Adam Rubin has written the definitive owner's manual for the professional voice. With pictures....With Vocal Pitstop, Adam-- sorry, make that Dr. Adam D. Rubin, MD-- has now drawn upon his unique perspective as a actor, singer and leading laryngologist to create an indispensable guide for anyone who relies on their voice to make a living.' From the Foreword by Ron Livingston

'So simple but not simplistic…that's the essence of Adam Rubin's extremely informative and beautifully illustrated new book, "The Vocal Pitstop…Keeping your Voice on Track." Singers are constantly asking me to recommend books that will clarify and summarize what every singer ought to know. This is a book that should be on every singer's bookshelf. It's well written, informative and easy to digest. Dr.Rubin is an otolaryngologist who actually began his career as a singing actor. He is able to use his rare perspective as both a physician and a performer in this truly enjoyable book. Don't leave home without it!' Joan Lader

'This is an excellent book. Mr. Rubin has put together a concise, easy-to-read owners manual for the voice. Relevant, authoritative, and often funny, Rubin's voice is one that professional singers need to hear--as do other professional vocal perfmers and enthusiastic amateurs who want to take the best care of what they have. I found his exercises helpful and loved his flow-charts that move seamlessly from problem to diagnosis to action steps. This is without question the best book of its kind.' Peter E Marks
