I teach English as a foreign language, and I bought this book to use with advanced students. There is some very useful material in it, but for each unit there's quite a lot to take in. For highly motivated students it would be very useful, but I would say that for the majority it's a book to dip in to now and again.
I like the way that the chapters are arranged, particularly the collocations that are in topic areas. The exercises that complement each section are also well thought out.
I also bought "English Idioms in Use" (advanced), which I feel will be more useful, and which the students seem to find more accessible. Nevertheless I will be using this book from time to time.

well organised and really useful for students who want to prepare the CAE exam as they have many expressions as well as idioms and collocations

It is great! I have just read and completed a couple of exercises so far but I've already learnt a lot of useful words which are used by native speakers usually and also I'm learnt that how two different words can be used correctly together.

Great book to help you sound more natural. The exercises in there are quite hard though, so not so good for intermediates. I would recommend higher level of English for effective studying.
