Simple, concise, useful. 5 stars!
British English (RP) accent as it's spoken by young educated people. Not too posh, not too fake, not too upper crust. I'd recommend this book to everyone (native or foreign) who wants to master the RP clearly without the need to waste hundreds of pounds on private elocution classes. It worked for me and people around me could really notice my fast improvement.

Very good book with CD with good passages as examples. For me, it needed more emphasis on the problem sounds (diphthongs especially which were given less space than other sounds). A simple straightforward approach makes it accessible and an excellent starting point for accent softening.

so far the best book in this topic including the CD.
I`m doing a pronunciation course in London and the teachers were recommending this. By far the best book that came across.

Strongly recommend.

I teach pronunciation both in class and to private students and this is the best resource I've found to help my students in class and in self-study. It covers all the sounds of standard British English and gives clear examples of articulation in videos. The audio files are great for students to practise on their own and there's a lot of other support for students to asess themselves. Best of all, it's a very reasonable price.

The best accent book I have ever read. The instructions, diagrams, videos and examples are perfect. The only thing that could be better was the naming of the MP3 files. If they were organized in folders or there was an indicator in their names, that would make finding particular files easier. However you can still check the book and then find the MP3s. Happy that I found this book, and glad I bought it.

Liked the content here and think it fills a useful niche. I might use it with my business pronunciation classes among Singaporeans who want to sound more polished. Note that it is British English throughout.
