Inspiring material for language lovers

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.

Pleasure for polyglots, treasure for newbies

If you consider learning a foreign language but have any kind of doubts about your ability to learn it or about how to proceed, this is a perfect book for you -- a treasure-trove of motivation bust and practical advice. Also if you've been actually trying to learn one or more foreign languages but without much success, this well be a very helpful book for you. Even if you are already passionate about learning languages and made a tangible progress with one or more of them, this will be inspirational and enriching book for you and -- you will still find lots of useful tips for language learning and will be reassured that what you do is not a crazy obsession but a quest shared by many others.

The author is clearly passionate about languages; his advice is knowledgeable and sincere. Unlike so many others, he does not proclaim himself a discoverer of the best, the one and only, way to learn a foreign language but instead shares a lot of his personal experience and valuable advice, stating that the most important thing to succeed is to be passionate about learning the language. I couldn't agree more.

I didn't expect much from this book (fluent in three months, it's sounds like another marketing gimmick), but it turned out to be one of the best books about language learning I've ever read.
