I was really excited to find this book because I've tried off and on to learn different languages, but was never successful. I was even praised in beginning level courses for my quick pick up on the material, but whenever I reached something beyond the basics I would fumble. Listening to this book kind of pointed out to me why this was happening. I have found myself listening and re-listening to this book finding new points to draw from and it makes me excited and always revitalized ready to continue my language learning journey assured that I will succeed this time.
I will say that if you are willing to delve into his actual website you can find all this information and maybe even find a video of the author telling it to you. I clearly was not and enjoy the portability of this book in Audio form.
In a short summary: If you find yourself stuck in your language learning journey and cannot figure out why, maybe give this book a listen and see if it can point you in the right direction.

I've been following "Benny the Irish Polyglot" at his blog for a few months now, and this book is essentially all of his great hints and tips in one place, put together so you don't have to hunt for them. He's living proof that learning to speak multiple languages CAN happen, but he'll also tell you that fluency in 3 months requires 3 or more hours per day. If you don't need "mastery" or don't have that kind of time commitment, a slower pace will still get you where you're looking to be with dedication in the time frame you do have. If nothing else, dispelling the myths, addressing concerns, and providing a positive platform for beginners are what Benny does best. That's what this book is all about.
