27 Phrasal Verbs That You Should Know
4.  27 Phrasal Verbs That You Should Know by Daniel Welsch
The list author says:
  "I couldn't leave this one out! I wrote this book because I've found that the normal way of teaching phrasal verbs is ineffective. Students often feel that phrasal verbs are the most difficult thing in English, mostly because they were never explained correctly. This book gives examples of 27 different phrasal verbs to get to understand the meanings, as well as practice exercises."
