“Foundations of Voice Studies has won the American Publishers Award for professional and Scholarly Excellence (PROSE Award) for best book of 2011 in the areas of Language and Linguistics. It has been praised as “a gem” by David Pisoni of Indiana University and “a remarkable book” by Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel of MIT. Even just its tables make this an invaluable book, worthy of a spot in every phonetician’s library.” (The Phonetician, 1 January 2011) “A truly remarkable achievement! Kreiman and Sidtis cover virtually every topic ever examined in voice science and blend in their own considerable experience and insight to produce a volume that is both readable and engaging.” Michael J. Owren, Georgia State University “Foundations of Voice Studies is a remarkable book, forging top-quality scholarship with crystal-clear writing to produce an unparalleled treatment of voice production and perception. Anyone interested in voice must have this text.” Gary Weismer, University of Wisconsin-Madison “A comprehensive, exceptionally-useful treatment of voice-related issues by two of the field's top practitioners; includes the basics of voice production, a model of speaker recognition via the voice, and current research in linguistic, forensic and emotional uses of voice information. The inclusion of online sound files is a particularly valuable addition.” Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel, Massachusetts Institute of Technology “Covering everything from anatomy, physiology and neural substrates to processing and even forensic applications – in a highly accessible format – Kreiman and Sidtis have drawn together perspectives on voice from a wide range of disciplines, making this volume an excellent resource for students, clinical professionals, and scholars alike.” Shari R. Baum, McGill University “The book is truly an amazing work. The authors are not only pioneers themselves in carrying out fundamental research on many of the key topics covered in the book, but they have managed to organize and synthesize an enormous body of literature and put it together in one easily accessible place. A gem... there simply is nothing like this anywhere.” David Pisoni, Indiana University

Exploring questions of how and why the quality of a person’s voice influences our perceptions, Foundations of Voice Studies provides a comprehensive introduction to, and analysis of, the multifaceted role that voice quality plays in our social lives. Beginning with an approachable and thorough overview of various aspects of vocal physiology and its control, Kreiman and Sidtis examine the neurological and sociological contexts for producing and listening to voices. Replete with fascinating sidebars and discussions of how voices are used in advertising and media, and legal and forensic issues of identifying voices, they have written an essential work that unifies the results of their own pioneering studies with the most current scientific literature. This unique and interdisciplinary volume on all facets of voice production and its perception is supported by sound files and additional material, available at www.wiley.com/go/voicestudies.
