Review “Harlan Hogan has written a fascinating, often hysterical and—most importantly—stubbornly honest account of the real world of voice-overs. If you want to know what the business really is like, reading this book is the easiest and smartest decision you could possibly make.” —Dan O'Day, broadcast media and marketing consultant, Los Angles “Funny. Insightful. All you need (and don’t need) to be a successful voice-over. The best, and funniest, practitioner of the craft has once again written the best, and funniest, book about the craft.” —Chuck Cohen, writer/producer, San Francisco “Voice-over work is a very delicate dance of interpretation, a mastery of one’s own instrument. Harlan Hogan is that talent—a maestro of the art of vocal calisthenics. His wit and wisdom found in these pages is a must-read for anyone connected with the industry or considering a career at the mic." —Hope Krosskove, broadcast producer, New Jersey “VO: Tales and Techniques of a Voice-Over Actor is a reflection of its author: thorough and generous. From rank beginner to veteran voice actor, everyone will benefit from Harlan’s advice, tips, and expertise as one of the most respected voice talents and teachers in the business." —Bob Bergen, voice actor, voice of Porky Pig “Harlan is the master at demystifying today’s VO biz so you can tackle everything from new technologies to performing like a pro in any environment.” —Janet Wilcox, voice actress/coach, author of Voiceovers: Techniques & Tactics for Success, Second Edition, Los Angeles "The most effective storytellers leave you with something in the core of each tale that you can actually use. Harlan has packed this book with anecdotes that will make you smile, laugh, cringe or simply nod knowingly. Drink them in slowly and look for the nugget of great advice that lives inside so many of Harlan's wonderful stories." —Jeff Hoyt, voice actor/writer-producer, Hoyt's Greater Radio, Seattl
