Review:

'The book is characterized by an ambitious scope, a well-thought out structure, and a balanced approach. It follows a clear progression from fundamental concepts in linguistics to models of acquisition to practical applications in language teaching. Complex information is presented in an easily accessible format without resorting to oversimplification or generalizations and without losing sight of the intended audience.' – Studies in Language

'[De Bot, Lowie and Verspoor] have written a rare advanced SLA text: very readable, yet intriguing and challenging. This is a text for anyone with an interest in Second Language Acquisition, Applied Linguistics, or Dynamic Systems Theory, and undoubtedly is a text that can profitably be read numerous times.' – Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language
