What happens when something breaks down in communication? Meaning, when the message does not come across because of a lack of correlation between the words and the way in which the words are expressed?


We are surrounded everyday by voices that emotionally affect us differently. Some voices are enjoyable to listen to, other voices assault the ears. Most people unconsciously form an impression of others on the basis of how they sound. It is therefore important that we pay attention to the emotions behind the words to understand why we are affected as we are, and to understand what the other person actually says and believes.


In The Voice is a Snitch, Lisbeth Hultmann focusses on uncovering the voice behind the words, meaning to map nonverbal messages. She seeks to show that overall there is a close relationship between the way we express ourselves and the way we live our lives.


The Voice is a Snitch is about the relationship between voice, behavior, and personality, and it aims to provide insight into this relationship from an existential perspective (which recognizes the individual as a free and responsible agent). The book provides tools for the adjustment and change of inexpedient patterns, but more importantly, it provides insight into how these patterns may emerge and thereby the identification of the motivations that may underlie them. With this awareness, we can assume roles in which one’s voice-type optimally suits the situation and message. The book’s proposed solutions can be for that reason long-term and durable.


The Voice is a Snitch is relevant for all those for whom communication and mediation is a core competence. The book primarily addresses professionals and those with managerial responsibilities for others, such as those working with HR, teachers, trainers, psychologists, therapists, speech therapists, song and voice instructors, and coach and drama instructors.


Secondly, it addresses all those who in their professional capacity feel a daily challenge in the use of their voice (for example, singers, actors, rhetoricians, lecturers, radio and television journalists, priests, and others).
