Not a great value.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have no idea.

Would you ever listen to anything by Gwyneth Strong and Penny Dyer again?

No.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed in the quality. Much of it seemed to be recorded out in public - with poor recording equipment.

Any additional comments?

Seems like she was giving some woman that was with her a lesson. She recorded that lesson, and decided to resell that lesson to the public. Essentially you are paying to listen in on someone else's lesson.

Inspiring!

The book has inspired me to study even more about accents. I will certainly buy the other books. Thank you
