The greatest loss one can have is the inability to speak: to form a communicative relationship with words, melody, and movement.

No. 83: Mindset: The Sound of Your Voice (Audio CD), by Carol Fleming

Carol Fleming's self-help audiobook, 'The Sound of Your Voice', has landed at No. 83 on our list of the Top 100 self-help books of all time.

Classic Self-Help BooksThe only audiobook on our list of the Top 100 Self-Help Books of All Time, Dr. Carol Fleming’s “The Sound of Your Voice” focuses on the auditory nature of our voices. Utilizing exercises that are best worked with a voice recorder, Fleming helps you first identify your “voice image,” which is similar to — and should align with — your self-image. Then, she walks you through the steps to help you get there. Not particularly designed for public speakers, the CDs best serve those who aren’t happy with the quality of their speaking voices, and Fleming goes over all the techniques needed to project a brighter image.

Who is Carol Fleming? A short biography at

Trained at Northwestern University, Dr. Carol Fleming first decided she wanted to help people communicate when she saw a small child who was unable to walk. He couldn't hold things or lift his head to look at his mother. "Also, the mother did not look at him at all. Worst of all, there was no talk from one to the other. He couldn't make a sound. She didn't bother. That's when I knew that the greatest loss one can have is the inability to speak: to form a communicative relationship with words, melody, and movement."

Fleming was soon studying to become a speech pathologist, a job she maintained for years before forming a private practice in San Francisco. Fleming's techniques go beyond voice training to focus also on subtle communication skills such as gesture, posture and facial expressions.
