I bought the students' book and the teachers' book based on the reviews on Amazon. The content is quite helpful and relevant. However, unless you have all the books AND the CD it isn't possible to use the book properly, which makes this an expensive option for teachers buying their own materials. Further, the content isn't easily photocopiable as much of it is spread across two pages, meaning that really a book per student is required, again, an expensive option. The teachers' book is helpful and has a lot of tips and ideas but, again, can't be used without the CD and students' book. I wouldn't choose it again.

A good book but it'd very annoying that the company has set upi the series so that you need to buy numerous different components e.g. workbook etc in order to follow this cours. It's already expensive. I don't want to spend more!

I like the Headway series as they are interesting and this book is great for discussion even at elementary level. Subjects are up-to-date and appropriate for different cultures. My student has improved a lot since starting this book.

Great new updated version of Headway. (The third for me) They have slimmed it down to more essential English, so that the student is well on his way to communicating in the language after less than halfway through. The CDs mean that the learner can go ahead or revise on his own, and progress is much quicker, satisfying, and student centred. The lesson content is topical and interesting so motivating. Thoroughly recommended. Only criticism is that the sound quality of the class audio CDs is not so good. The old cassettes were much better!

Just what exactly is this book supposed to teach? Is it as it says, a book to instruct people in English, people from all walks of life, be they liberal or conservative, religious or atheist, man or woman, black or white, gay or straight, disabled or healthy? Or is it 'Introduction to Gender Studies 101', with the goal of instructing all who use it that the most oppressed people on the planet are women, of whom the ones suffering the most are young left-wing college educated white women. For a close examination of the text astonishingly reveals this book to be nearer the latter - it's literally filled with 1980s/90s feminist ideology, whether it be bogus statistics related to pay discrepancies since revealed by the gender equity movement and egalitarians to be completely misleading, or repeating hearsay long since proved to be completely unscientific.

'Women earn on average 17% less than men for full time work.' Read Susanna-Hoff Sommers, Warren Farrell or Christine Bauer-Jelinek on that one. Women earn less because they study French Lit instead of Engineering, they work part-time and do far less overtime, they avoid dangerous, dirty and unhealthy work, or jobs requiring travel or long-distance commuting, they choose jobs which don't impact on their social lives as much, they choose jobs which are fulfilling and stimulating rather than high-earning, they sell less in all sales jobs and earn less commission, and they are less effective at negotiating pay rises with management. Headway's misleading sentence simply angers ill-informed women against men by making out that it is all men's fault. It makes men feel guilty for something they are not responsible for, but which lies in the hands of women.

Excellent for teaching English ... does need a tutor though and a class to work with for preference. Always good books, reliable both for student and teacher.
