Greatest Mysteries of the Unexplained: A Compellin&hellip by Andrew Holland
Curious collection of known "mysteries" written in an elementary language and presented with greater simplicity than needed. Avoid as the book is not informative.

The "Accident" is yet another book about secrets, mistrust and emotional and physical abuse. The topic is heavy and the plot is cleverly constructed to cover both past and present events. I liked the first half of the book. It is engaging and believable. The cliches are plentiful, and that is partially why the second half lost it for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, but misleading, 15 Jun 2014
I found the book very useful; it helped me at no end with pronunciation in French.

The words are spoken by native French speakers and the pauses are long enough, so that the reader can repeat and engage with the questions.

However, French for dummies will not teach you French. After listening to the course and going through the exercises; the most you can hope for is to remember 10-15 phrases. Alor!
