What do rock stars, Nobel laureates, bestselling novelists, astronauts, and attorneys have in common? A teacher changed their lives. Like them, most of us can name a teacher who gave us not only good instruction but also confidence and drive. But, in the face of teachers being blamed for a variety of social and economic woes, teachers themselves can easily wonder whether they are making a difference in students’ lives. When veteran teacher Bruce Holbert asked himself this question, his wife, Holly, responded by sending letters to hundreds of people she had never met and had no reason to believe would respond, asking about teachers who mattered to them. She was overwhelmed by answers. Thank You, Teacher presents more than eighty of these up-close-and-personal stories. By a delightfully diverse range of contributors, these essays are wise and witty testaments to the teachers who do what they do every day without expecting recognition, but who so richly deserve it.

Wow! I am reading your book The Art of Voice Acting, and I want you to know it was worth way more than the cover price! The insights into the business, the A-B-Cs... it's all incredibly helpful. I was told by a producer in Vancouver, B.C., to get your book, he called it "The Voiceover Bible." He was so right! Gord Brooks Voice Services (Canada) Thank you for such a wonderful book! Your sense of humor is delightful, the content is superbly detailed and your encouragement throughout is greatly appreciated. I wanted to let you know just how first-rate I think The Art of Voice Acting is. I have taken two (2) Master classes in the past year-and-a-half but I got more practical information in just the first few chapters of your book than from the seminars. Thank you again for sharing your expertise. Daria M. Dutzmann, voice actor Just a note of thanks for your excellent book The Art of Voice Acting. I had the opportunity to do some radio spots today---and for the first time, started to touch on "voice acting" instead of "voice over." This really made a difference in my read---and the director was delighted! Eric Funk, President, Entertainment on Hold, Inc. I have been a successful voice over for about 10 years and recently bought and read The Art of Voice Acting. I must have been guided to do it! It was like receiving a (gentle) kick in my behind, spurring me to get reorganized, regalvanized, newly inspired because---to say the truth---I was sitting on my laurels doing very little to perfect my skills or bring new life to my career. Now I feel full of new energy. This is what I call an inspired purchase!" Anna Rigano, professional voice actor (UK)

This highly informative guide is for every woman wanting to know how to navigate the entertainment superhighway and find that job of a lifetime.
