Simply wonderful & different

I have a big collection of vocabulary books & audio products, but the approach of this one is different. It teaches to learn from roots of words. I have been teaching my daughters with the help of this program. I wish the producers come up with more of this type.

Very good - too bad there is not a series

I found this audiobook very helpful and the techniques utilized were conducive to learning. It is fairly inexpensive, educational, and somewhat entertaining. There was certainly impetus to listen from beginning to end. In fact, I listened to it several times in the first week. Go for it, become erudite in the many words of the English language.
