This is not a viable way to proceed: reading text for which you have no pronunciation whatever. Reading it on holiday, indeed. Not anywhere else but Lewis when, of all places, sunshine cannot be guaranteed.
Birlinn really should have seen this. It is an elementary mistake.
A cd with the sounds could easily have been included.

There is a warning on the first page saying that it isn't a text book and that grammar books and Scots-English dictionaries are recommended. I find from personal experience that this book is a great tool to help reinforce the language in complement of a language course (such as a cd-rom or classroom). It is designed to be self explanatory; it builds vocabulary and doesn't assume the reader has knowledge of Gaelic. This allows a reader to get something (a lot, depending on the work put into it) out of it even if they have no previous knowledge of the language. However, to learn the language, there is much more to learn than is expressed in the book. As long as the reader understands that the book isn't meant to stand alone as a language course, I can't see how anyone wanting to learn Gaelic could be dissatified with this excellent book. (...Unless they don't speak English or Gaelic....then it could be hard to read.)
