It would be perfect like a video seeing people talking in wrong and right way.
It was short and sweet but I got some good pointers from it. The most common regional anomalies were covered as well as some exercises to improve voice quality. Written in an entertaining way and read very nicely. I will listen to it again!
I really enjoyed listening to this title and it does go into great detail about current and correct pronunciation of words and sentences, and the linguistics and muscle movements behind speech. I really think anyone could benefit from listening to this no matter how advanced their spoken English.
What was a little disappointing for me was that the recording covers a huge amount of ground in an hour and I felt it would have been better if presented more slowly, repeating the various points in different ways to help you digest them. It felt very rushed with 2-3 hours being more realistic to deal with all the exercises and lessons - like having an hour to eat a five course meal.
You do need a quiet place to practice several of the exercises, definitely not one for the tube!

This is a useful book even if English is not your first language. I am not a native English speaker but found it very helpful for improving my accent. I also have downloaded the Level 2 which is very good and goes at a little bit slower pace. This first book is excellent but you will have to stop and start your player for the exercises I think! The narrator has a very good voice. I would like level 3 now!
