I applaud all of these efforts, although I never heard of any of them until recently (April 2016). I fought the same battle for 25 years. As a young trial attorney, I couldn’t even say my name in court. With the help of six sessions with a psychiatrist and years of trial and error, I did find my own ways of making my stuttering undetectable, even though fears of it still haunt me every day; the good news is that people can’t tell that I am still fighting stuttering. I’m long in the tooth now and long retired, and I have decided to make stuttering my charity; that is, a couple months ago, I released a book detailing my methods, which are quite different from anything that I’ve read in dozens of stuttering-books. My book (Stuttering & Anxiety Self-Cures, which is on Kindle), I GIVE away to stutterers, their parents and therapists, no strings attached (no products, clinics or anything else to sell – I’m long past all of that). So, if you want my book free, just email me your email address to, and I’ll buy a copy for you. I only ask one thing in return: Feedback; that is, the recipient’s suggestions, as my goal is to tweak my self-cures as needed to help others. Regardless, good luck to all stutterers. Lee
