: “A fetching, straightforward account of the struggles and successes of a respected radio personality. Rehm, host of an eponymous National Public Radio Show, offers an intimate look into her childhood, marriage, career, and battle with a rare neurological disorder that has affected her speech and thus nearly destroyed her career… Told with honesty and simplicity. An articulate and inspirational travelogue of one womans remarkable journey.” —Kirkus Reviews In Finding My Voice, the nationally acclaimed public radio host Diane Rehm tells the story of her remarkable life—a story in three acts. First, her childhood in a traditional Christian Arab household dominated by her psychologically abusive and beautiful mother whose influence on the intelligent young girl was substantial. Then, in her thirties she found her career, as host of her own radio talk show which 20 years later has become one of the most influential voices on radio today. Finally, she delves into her recent frightening battel with the rare neurological disorder, spasmodic dysphonia (SD) that almost cost her all that she had gained in life.
