“This book is meant not only for artists, but also to business people, teachers, public speakers – in short, to everyone who must give a performance, no matter what kind. Having been forced to learn, at the beginning of my career, how to manage terrible stress on my own, I would have really benefited from a guide like this one!

Claude speaks to all those who feel stress and anxiety when faced with giving a performance. With the help of examples and suitable exercises, he guides such a person in his/her bat- tle with their fears and brings them to “know their inner alm.” Claude offers a means to enter into oneself and take advantage – physically, mentally, and emotionally – of all the conscious and unconscious resources of one’s brain in order to replace nervous- ness and anxiety with Pleasure.”

-from the Foreword by Yannick Nézet-Séguin
