I have to agree with Gaston Bacquet. Do not buy the Kindle version. I had the exact same experience with it freezing my Kindle and not being able to read the book all (read his review to get the complete story). Very frustrating, and a waste of money. I suspect the book itself would be an excellent resource (I've listened to several of Thornbury's talks online and have really enjoyed them...), but the Kindle version is not the way to go.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Teaching Unplugged is an award winning book about Dogme in English Language Teaching, which is "materials light, conversation driven, and focuses on the learner and on their emergent language." This book is divided into three sections A, B, and C. Each section has an informative couple of pages explaining what that section is about and how the authors recommend one go about it as well as Dogme teaching "recipes" for teachers to use in the classroom.

I purchased this book because it closely resembles how I am learning the Asian language of the country where I am a resident alien. I think this is a good book, but most teachers, or student teachers, reading this book will be challenged to utilize much of these ideas full-time in their classrooms because of their student's shareholders wishes and beliefs about language teaching and the focus on testing in some parts of the world.

Overall, I think this book is really worth four stars, but I gave it three stars because I think according to the Dogme spirit that readers should be primarily reading the Kindle version--the paperless, electronic version instead of a traditional paper book. In addition, when I opened my copy, the binding of the International version separated slightly. I was not happy about that. I, too, urge the authors to fix the reported problems with the Kindle version so that readers do not have to order the paper and glue version of the book. Good reading to you.

Format: Paperback
An excellent book that every English teacher should read and reflect about their practice. It's a must-read for those who want their class to be different and meaningful.

This review refers to the Kindle version of the book and not to the book itself. I have tried to actually read the book a number of times on my device and there's something wrong with the formatting of the electronic version. When you tap on the screen for turning the page, nothing happens for several seconds. When the page does flip, it does so for 5 or 6 pages or it takes you right to the end of the book.
The table of contents will effectively freeze your device and you'll have to restart it. I have tried restarting the device as well as deleting the book and downloading it again, to no avail. I can't read more than 2 pages at a time without experiencing some kind of technical glitch which prevents me from reading.
I've contacted Amazon to get this fixed, but in the meantime I would encourage you to buy the printed version. The books contains invaluable data if you are into the Dogme approach to teaching, but you won't be able to read this electronic version.
