Summary ""Scott's book will make a difference in the lives of the many people who struggle with this distressing disorder."--Jane Fraser, president, The Stuttering Foundation of AmericaFor thirty-three years, Scott Damian sought freedom from stuttering and being imprisoned by the terror of being unable to utter a single word, until he transformed into a highly successful actor and writer. Scott speaks to the heart and soul of a stutterer, and addresses healing, help, and hope for the millions who are similarly afflicted. Damian is the 2012 winner of the Converting Awareness into Action Award from the Stuttering Foundation of America."-- Provided by publisher.
"V-V-Voice ... the word sticks in the back of your throat. Your mouth shudders as your teeth grit together. You push, trying to get the word out. A jarring, jackhammer sound gurgles out of your mouth. Your face contorts and your body shakes as judging eyes stare at you. A shameful feeling washes over you. Your soul is forever crushed. These are the humiliating trials that 60 million stutterers worldwide endure each and everyday ... and Scott Damian is one of them. In this gritty, raw memoir, Damian details the stirring battles he endured while searching for a solution to his inability to speak without stuttering. From his haunting blue-collar childhood in New Orleans to the physical and psychological scars that led Damian down a path of self-destructive behavior that was as crippling as the stuttering itself, "V-V-Voice: A Stutterer's Odyssey" chronicles the struggles of one stutterer to do the unimaginable; to use his voice as an actor and a writer, and help others find their own"-- Provided by publisher.
