Simple, concise, useful. 5 stars!
British English (RP) accent as it's spoken by young educated people. Not too posh, not too fake, not too upper crust. I'd recommend this book to everyone (native or foreign) who wants to master the RP clearly without the need to waste hundreds of pounds on private elocution classes. It worked for me and people around me could really notice my fast improvement.

Very good book with CD with good passages as examples. For me, it needed more emphasis on the problem sounds (diphthongs especially which were given less space than other sounds). A simple straightforward approach makes it accessible and an excellent starting point for accent softening.

so far the best book in this topic including the CD.
I`m doing a pronunciation course in London and the teachers were recommending this. By far the best book that came across.

Strongly recommend.

I love this book! The diagrams, illustrations and photos are really useful and the DVD with explanations about the correct mouth positions for the different speech sounds is a great tool. One of my students was using this book as a self-study tool and suggested I might find it useful - he was absolutely right.

The best accent book I have ever read. The instructions, diagrams, videos and examples are perfect. The only thing that could be better was the naming of the MP3 files. If they were organized in folders or there was an indicator in their names, that would make finding particular files easier. However you can still check the book and then find the MP3s. Happy that I found this book, and glad I bought it.

This book is an extremely valuable resource for anyone who wants to work on expanding their understanding of a standard English accent. I use it as a teaching resource with most of my students not only to highlight the importance of lip and jaw position for specific vowel sounds, but because the illustrations of the different tongue positions are so exact it takes all the guesswork out of what you should be doing.

I recommend this book all the time and I have seen how well it works when students apply themselves to the work. The dvd is great too.

Excellent book, I like the fact that there is a video showing you how to produce the sound.
I also like the tips given depending on the reader's mother language.
Overall I would recommend it to any advanced learner of English as a foreign language.
