The book is readable (which is helped by the illustrations) and limits the amount of technical terms it uses. It has three sections dealing with the sounds of individual letters, of syllables, words and sentences and in conversation, and a fourth reference section which includes a useful pronunciation test and a guide for speakers of a variety of other languages. It is not purely about speaking to native English speakers but also about listening to them and also has something on the variations in pronunciation between English speakers and speakers of other languages.
On the whole, it is a very useful book, probably more useful at the lower end of Intermediate English than more advanced students. Some students found certain exercises involving nonsense dialogues to differentiate different letter sounds confusing, but were otherwise happy with the book's combination of explanation and exercises.
It is a basic book for elemental users. You can find all that the book cover in internet without effort and with more examples and phonetic symbols. For being a intermediate book, in my opinion it lacks of liaison lessons and also reading parts.
It can be recommend in any case for a novel learner or somebody that have studied only grammar in the school.
