Informative but...

This has been a horrendously difficult audiobook to finish. The stoic and monotonous nature of the narrator has actually diminish all the excellent content in this book. It is NOT suitable to be adapted into an audiobook.

An excellent and very valuable book

I liked a lot this book, it's very clear and it provides excellent explanations to understand the principles behind the word order in English covering all the aspects of English grammar. It's a big, essential and very useful help to improve my skills. Inside the book everything it's very clear a good size of the letter and spaces between lines, all is structured in a very logical way. The voice of the speaker is also very clear. There are a lot of examples and exercises and the vocabulary is very vast so I learned new words, adjectives, and verbs. I would like to find more books written by the same author. I am very happy to find this book, everything is clearer now and the book is very well structured.

Grammar Help Workbook

So this is more like an audio book for a workbook to exercise grammar and great at explaining the topic. Work best if you pull out paper and pen during question time.

Good But Sample Somewhat Misleading

It's not the best audio format. Lots of workbook stuff with quick definition/explanations. The sample/beginning makes it sound like he's going to somehow make grammar fun/interesting as opposed to the rest of the books out there...

Excellent

It was really good to refresh my old knowledge about English grammar. I like to point out the rampant errors committed by the educated and brilliant people, including novelists, scientists and politicians. Regardless of the occupation, they are making too many errors. Even publishers make same dumb mistakes. School should teach the grammar in the early period.

It’s not fancy but what it lacks in creativity, style, design, and verve it makes up for in a sheer number of exercises and explanations. Pretty good! I teach English and this is a book I recommend to my students.

Basic knowledge

Each chapter had vocabulary words and their translations within the story to help translate as you go. There was also a large vocabulary list at the end of the chapter with all of the new words you learned in the story.

nice book

What I like most about this learning-Natural Word Order in English method is that it includes both formal English that I can use in a professional setting as well as very informal English that I may hear native English speaking friends or spouses speaking among themselves
