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 book engages with English in globalization, re-examining and re-interpreting the contemporary contexts of its acquisition and use. The chapters contained in this book weave together four inter-related themes that define the role of English in the global context: the ‘centrality of structure’, ‘relationships of interdependence’, ‘social constructions of difference’ and ‘reproduction of inequality’. These themes enable the authors to draw attention to the dynamics of the contemporary realities of the ‘English-speaking’ and ‘English-using’ nations, especially as they compete for cultural, social, economic and symbolic capital in global networks. In engaging World Englishes with the sociolinguistics of globalization, the authors raise some fundamental questions about the status, structure, and functions of World Englishes.
