Dr. Schwartz decribes in detail his "passive air flow technique," a procedure that he claims has an almost 94 percent success rate in the treatment of stuttering. After describing the physical causes of stuttering, he explains why attempts to treat it via speech therapy and psychotherapy usually fail. Emphasizing that his is not a "how to" book, he gives detailed advice on where to find workshops that teach his technique; ways to practice and to avoid relapses; and where to find professional and nonprofessional help. He also stresses that his method is not a cure-all for stuttering and that therapy may take a year or two. Almost half the book is devoted to Dr. Carter's account of how he used Schwartz's method of undetectible speech breathing to stop his own stuttering. Not an essential purchase.
