This book is a really good way to introduce yourself to phonetics. The lecturers widely refer to it and it has become an essential part to my masters

It's helping me greatly throughout my phonetics course, and is fine even if you read the book without the CD. Clearly structured and well-written, it's good for beginners whilst also providing in-depth detail for if you want to learn further. Pleased with the physical condition of the book as well.

Very nice quality of the book. As for the contents, peter Roach has done a great job to introduce people, even those with no knowledge on the field, to the science of phonetics and phonology. Comprehensible, with helpfull pictures and cd audio exercises. I used it as a coursebook for the university proposed by the professor, and am reall satiafied.

This is a truly amazing book. The audio material is excellent. Having studied in times when we had cassettes or nothing, I believe that there are very few sources of this quality. There are other books out there, but they are not professionally done. This book is written by people who know what they are talking about. Oscar M. Jimenez Phd/MA

I'm doing an MA in voice and this is on the reading list. Would still recommend it regardless for its simplicity and structure.
