An absorbing memoir, 'The Healing Power of Singing' probably holds more weight if you're a singer but is really for every woman juggling family and career. It's one which I will revisit from time to time. Emm Gryner is very honest about her life and experiences, within the entertainment industry and on a personal level. I listened to the audiobook narrated by the author and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this book, which is all about the author's singing career, how she helps others to make their singing voice better, how we can also improve our own singing voice, and how we can use it for healing. I especially liked the references to David Bowie, as he was, and still is, one of my favourite musicians of all time. His music is amazing, and to read about the author's working relationship with him was thrilling. The audiobook is narrated by the author, and she has a lovely voice. I think this is a great book, and I highly recommend it.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book contains so many top tips and self help ideas, not just about singing, but also for a better life. The activités and challenges set, help develop a strong voice, but the top tips help you become more dynamic and self aware.
Such a helpful and life changing book.
I listened to this as an audiobook and although I feel I may have missed out on a few of the paper books illustrations, the narrator of the audiobook was fabulous and really helped to guide you through. I love got so much to think about and try- I’ll have to listen to this again and again for extra guidance.

**Listened to audio book**

As a singer myself I was so excited to listen to/read this book. I definitely feel that singing can be healing!

However, this book just didn't connect with me. I found it really slow, and a bit dull. I don't think Emm Gryner had a clear vision for this book. Is it a memoir? Is it a technical bible? It was a bit of both, but it didn't really do much in either of those topics. It was trying to be too much, and think it should have had more of a focus.

I like the fact that Emm Gryner narrates this book herself - I always think when authors narrate their own books it makes a bigger difference.

Overall, I didn't enjoy this book - I just don't know how much I got from it!
