The author of this book is basically a singer with a keen intellect, which was used to manipulate those around her. The book reads like a reprinting of her own diary which relates the trials and tribulations of a well trained musician trying to become a full time performer. While the names have been changed to protect the innocent, it reveals the psyche of someone who seems to have justified not having a career by blaming those around her. Good musicianship alone was not sufficient in this case to compensate for a rather uninteresting stage presence.Had the author's ego or pride been put aside long enough,it would have allowed her to make certain physical alterations (originally suggested by her voice teacher)which could have led to the career she always dreamed of before moving into academia.

Obviously, you are not a singer worth hearing, if in fact,you are one at all. You have no idea what you are talking about.
