I May Be Wrong

Atomic Habits

THE PHENOMENAL INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER - 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD Transform your life with tiny changes in behaviour, starting now. People think that when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions: doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early, or holding a single short phone call. He calls them atomic habits.

Bounce: The Myth of Talent and the Power of Practice (Matthew Syed)

If you have not read this yet and teach voice to actors or singers you need to buy it now and read it. If like me you believe that technique in voice and singing training is primarily muscle training then you must read this book. It will change your whole way of thinking about talent and the nature of the artistic gift.
"The Power of Mindful Learning" book cover

The Power of Mindful Learning (Ellen Langer)

Mindful learning is the key to effective, long term and measurable development. This wonderfully clear book from the seriously smart Ellen Langer will change the way you teach. If you approach voice training from a basic position as training and encouraging a change in muscular behaviour (as I do), then it follows on that you can’t change behaviour you’re not aware of. I strongly recommend this book to everyone who wants to improve the quality of their teaching and communication. You will wonder how you taught without it.
Cracking the Menopause: While Keeping Yourself Together Book Cover

Cracking the Menopause: While Keeping Yourself Together - Mariella Frostrup

This book will infuriate you, in absolutely all of the right ways. All women go through the menopause but not all women experience the same symptoms or severity of symptoms. Some women hardly even notice it. If you have found yourself suffering from a myriad of apparently inexplicable symptoms in your forties including sleeplessness, weight gain, hair loss, migraines, anxiety, short term memory loss and the infamous hot flushes, it is likely you are peri-menopausal. Mariella Frostrup and Alice Smellie clearly lay out the causes, symptoms and consequences of the menopause, the sudden stopping of oestrogen production as well as the importance of HRT in staving off not only symptoms but the long term impact on health including osteoporosis and heart failure. It’s not all bad news but women need to be much better informed about something that is completely unavoidable but which need not cause so much suffering. Read this and change your life.
