I really like the way the authors have mapped out a process and an easy system that actually makes sense. My accent awareness and 'muscles memory' HAS really improved. The 'top tips' and chapter summaries are really clear. It would be better if the tracks were printed on the CD and if the Accent tracks were clearly marked but thats a small point! cos you don't realise you're getting 12 native speakers on the CD,so its pretty good value for money.
Its also a book you can go back to! My American accent has really improved by learning about the 'Two Planets' or when to do an 'R' and when not to! I have started to notice things in others peoples accents. Its well worth the read and bet you use it time and time again...A lot of accent and phonetics books are really dry this so isn't! oh its pretty funny too!
Don't waste your money unless you have endless patience and a very high IQ in order to understand this book
