About the Author

Daniel R. Boone, PhD, is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona. He has published 17 books and more than 100 other publications (chapters and articles) on voice and motor speech problems. He is revered nationally and internationally for his teaching and clinical activities as well as for his love and dedication to his students, and he is a household name to all who study speech pathology. Boone, who belongs to the "group of founding fathers of American speech pathology," is sought after as a speaker, lecturer, and workshop leader on voice disorders, communication problems in aging, and new perspectives in speech pathology. He is a former president of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and a recipient of both Fellowship and Honors from that organization, as well as many other honors and recognitions. He serves on numerous editorial boards of scholarly journals and contributes regularly to research literature. Boone continues to offer voice therapy workshops for the Parkinson Voice Project in Dallas, Texas, and serves as a voice and motor speech consultant at his studio in Tucson, Arizona.


Daniel R. Boone is bedrock in the profession that deals with tangles of human communication. He was there before digital was ubiquitous and his brilliance remains and continues. Although he is best known for his stellar contributions to disorders and treatment of the human voice, his power and authority are inescapable in our world of drones and robots. Dr. Boone has worked with the brain and the tongue and the lips and helped hundreds of persons in need. This tome is a narrative path strewn with flowers and a few thorns that brings life to the characters who have fallen into the abyss of faulty communication. Boone's stories are poignant, resonant, and inspirational. These chronicles merit a very large audience. -- Leonard L. LaPointe Ph.D, Francis Eppes Distinguished Professor, Communication Science and Disorders, Florida State University
Trouble Talking provides a guided journey through the human mind and spirit with a soulful, witty and deeply empathic guide. Dr. Boone writes with so light a touch that his patients and their complex conditions become accessible to all. These extraordinary vignettes remind us of what it feels like to dream, feel, and love. This remarkable little book is a must-read for anyone interested in person-centered health care today. -- Shelley L. Von Berg, professor and clinical instructor, communication sciences and disorders, California State University, Chico
Daniel Boone's new book, Trouble Talking: The Realities of Communication, Language, and Speech Disorders, offers a heartfelt and humorous series of patient-based stories brilliantly presented to teach about various communication disorders ranging from aphasia, traumatic brain injury, dysarthria, cerebral palsy, and stuttering, to multiple forms of voice disorders and public speaking challenges. The reader has the opportunity to meet each patient and learn about their disorder as well as the rationale behind typical evaluation and treatment approaches offered by speech-language pathologists (SLPs) working in medical settings. Boone is a gifted story teller and compassionate SLP with an extraordinary and longstanding career spanning from the 1950s to current time. His wealth of professional and clinical experience is reflected by his skillful anticipation of the reader's informational needs, questions, and desire for guidance regarding additional resources. Overall, this book offers an engaging series of patient-based stories that will satisfy the reader's quest for greater understanding about a wide variety of communication struggles and the holistic approaches to management that SLPs offer. -- Julie Barkmeier-Kraemer, PhD, CCC-SLP, ASHA-F, University of Utah
"In Trouble Talking, [Boone] shares stories of his experiences with patients with a variety of speech, language, and communication disorders, as well as valuable lessons that he learned throughout his career." * CHOICE *
