Beyond Stuttering: The McGuire Programme For Getting Good at the Sport of Speaking Dave McGuire

This revised and updated edition of Beyond Stammering outlines the techniques taught by the McGuire Programme. Their internationally recognised method not only improves speech, but offers the enjoyment, not the dread, of speaking in a series of breathing and diaphragm exercises that breaks the self-perpetuating cycle of stuttering.  Uniquely, the McGuire Programme combines physical techniques (breathing and relaxation) with mental strategies for dealing with the fear of stuttering, as well as how to develop an assertive attitude to the problem.
