This audio is the new and expanded third edition of American Accent Training, with four all-new chapters that cover the psychology of accent acquisition, American voice quality, a pronunciation overview, and an ESL instructor's guide. The audio features professional male and female voices that have been carefully selected to represent that perfect American accent. With 30 years of extensive research, the unique AAT methodology has been refined to teach the American sound quickly and easily, paying special attention to:
Voice quality, with emphasis on accurate presentation of the authentic American sound
Pronunciation, with attention to all vowels, consonants, blends, and diphthongs
Intonation, which focuses on syllable stress rules and word stress in a sentence
Linking, or liaisons between phonetically transcribed sounds so students can "see" the sound.
Added features include access to comprehensive websites and referral to a qualified telephone analyst for individual help.
American Accent Training has been Americanizing the speaking habits of students and businesspeople since 1991. Going where no accent training has gone before, AAT continues to set the standard for anyone learning or teaching the American accent.

Don't buy this. I feel cheated
Never after this. The audio book is giving you directions to follow a visual guide that apparently is not in the market.
I feel furious with Audible. What is the use of recommending a guide that has been rejected by Amazon? I didn't realize it at the beginning -the title is the same as the one sold along with 5 CDs. Misleading title, misled reader.
Narrators are ok, though most of the recording is chaotic and there are very few and short exercises. It looks like it is recommending you to make an effort in improving your accent while not giving you the proper stuff to do it.
Anger and disappointment.
Please, do the same a Amazon has done. The book is not been sold because of serious quality problems, according to the web.

THE WORST BOUGHT ITEM EVER
To have the complete course or to know in advance that this was just a part of it. Nothing is doable with the audiobook
The sound is higher in some parts, there is no harmony in the transitions, there is no material to follow the course.
They should have put in clear terms the kind of book this is. You have to buy the audiobook and then you need 100 USD to start using it.
