In my opinion, the title of this book is very misleading - it is actually just a book of tips to try out.,

This review is from: The Pocket Linguist: A Practical Guide to Learning any Language. (Paperback)
We often use the phrase "never judge a book by its cover" when we think something may be better than it appears. In this case the opposite is true. The title of this book and the cover design misleads you into thinking that this is a book that will teach you everything you need to know about learning a language. It claims to be a guide to language learning for the aspiring linguist. You should be aware that it is really just a book of tips and tricks for language learning. Some of these tips are helpful so it may be worth a read but in my opinion it is not "a practical guide to learning any language".
