Principals

Lee Lovett created Speech Anxiety Anonymous (SAA), his name for a self-help organization that was founded in 2017 by him and a handful of people who stopped stuttering  (PWSS), by using the methods explained in “Stuttering & Anxiety Self-Cures”, the Amazon-book by Lee G. Lovett.  Lee published that book in 2016, the 2nd Edition in 2017, and the almost 600-page 3rd Edition in 2019 (which is now available in several languages).  SAA, now in concert with SAC, hopes to spread the good news:  Stuttering and speech anxiety can be stopped.
