'an excellent bridge for an obvious gap in the acquisition of Yoruba ... It is systematic, simple and clear' Oluseye Adesola, Yale University, USA

The book itself is not particularly well structured. The author does not seem to be a teacher, although they are fluent linguistically. The usually terms used in language books are mis-used and not always present. Explanations are not as clear as you would like making this more of a companion to lessons taken in person rather than a route to self-study
Anyway I have the CD's - delivered in good time...I ordered the book as the CD's are pretty useless without it.
So in all this set actually costs just short of £50.
There is not a large range of products for beginners learning Yoruba language so I'm staying positive with this one.
I'll review the whole package when I receive the book.
