He produced a wonderful audio book for me. You can listen at www.makemillions. com. He made edits and revisions with a good attitude and spent time creating a great book. I would recom- mend him to anyone." -JOE TEMPLE-Documentary maker, Eureka Media: "Bruce provides an excellent voice and makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the final product.  Some narrators don't take the time to read the script beforehand. Bruce isn't one of those people. He pays attention to every detail, making sure that the text comes to life. I would definitely use him again." -MARK MORRIS-Producer, Miss. State Farm Bureau: "We constantly mispronounce Bruce's last name, so around here he is known as "The Voice of Reason." Not only does BR possess the range and quality of voice that we need, he has incredibly quick turn-around time, and is very accommodating when revisions are required. Always on time, always in our budget and always just the right voice. Bruce is very easy to work with, and always delivers the goods. He makes me look good by adding that extra professional polish to all our video projects. I highly recommend Bruce to everyone, no matter what your voice-over needs." -MARY GOULD-Manager, Mind Wings Audio: "Bruce Reizen's services have been excellent. His talent for numerous voice characters that are clear and dis- tinguishable really makes a story come alive. The knowledge that comes with background in variouslang- uages and dialects also adds to his interpretation of manuscripts, and was greatly appreciated. Bruce has performed [now seven] projects for me[The Harry Landers detective series audiobooks,] and I expect to use his services in the future." -JOE TEMPLE- Documentary maker, Eureka Media: "Once again, Bruce does an excellent job, and takes the time to go over the script before he records, making sure that you're completely satisfied with the product." REVIEWS OF SOME OF MY 42 AUDIOBOOKS: -Publisher's Weekly-Review of audiobook, "THE REAL BOOK of REAL ESTATE: Real Experts. Real Stories. Real Life," by Robert Kiyosaki; read by Bruce Reizen, Sandra Burr, and Jim Bond: "The book couldn't come at a more appropriate time...and luckily, seasoned narrators Bruce Reizen, Jim Bond and Sandra Burr make listening an ENJOY- ABLE and PERSONABLE experience.... [T]his TALENTED CAST not only injects LIFE into their respective readings, but also manages to get the point across without sounding the least bit robotic." -AudioFile Mag.-Review of audiobook," TRAIN MAN," by P.T. Deutermann; read by Bruce Reizen: "Deutermann and Reizen team up to de- liver a well-plotted, ENTERTAINING thriller peopled with believable charac- ters....Reizen provides ACCENTS for the LARGE CAST of law-enforcement offic- ials up and down the Mississippi River and in Washington, D.C. His PACING and ENUNCIATION add to the precise technical details, meticulous research, and complex characters." -AudioFile Magazine-Review of audiobook(Brilliance Corp.), "CONQUERORS' HERITAGE," by Timothy Zahn; read by Bruce Reizen: : "Timothy Zahn has created a universe in which mankind faces war against a newly discovered alien race.
