    "almost no info about Esperanto; poor pronunciation"

    As an Esperantist of more than 25 years, I was not looking to learn any Esperanto from this book. I was, however, hoping that it would present some basics about the language.

    I found instead that this book consists mainly of a series of bland generalisations about Esperanto and about the culture of Esperantists, but contains virtually no information about the language. And, on the rare occasion when an Esperanto word is actually uttered, it is in every case pronounced very poorly.

    If this book didn't cost only two dollars, I would return it. I strongly recommend not buying it. This book will do nothing to inform anyone about the facts of Esperanto, or to induce anyone with a curiosity about the language to learn it. And that is a shame, because Esperanto is a truly remarkable phenomenon. The language's small set of exception-free grammatical rules could indeed have been presented in a manner that is likely to spur further interest.

    So I must say that the author, James Nugent, did a very poor job with his subject matter. And the narrator, Stan Jenson, did an utterly horrendous job in rendering the few Esperanto words which he was asked to pronounce. Mr. Jenson could easily have researched the proper pronunciation of that handful of words.
