Review:

"...one of the most successful introductory texts in the
field, as it manages an ongoing seamless combination of phonetic and
phonological theory and areas of practical application. As a textbook it covers
a vast amount of material, but is consistently successful in presenting only
what is immediately relevant for the undergraduate / EFL level it is aimed at." -- Linguist List, 2008
