Better Than Most but Lacks Learning Stragegy and Psychology,
This review is from: How to Learn Any Language (Hardcover)
Barry Farber's classic 'How to Learn Any Language' approaches language learning from the perspective of a person who grew up in a largely monolingual America and went on to learn many languages fluently.
Language technology and understanding how the internal workings of the subconscious mind greatly impact future fluency in a language are topics which are largely ignored by Farber.
His techniques are solid, his stories are hilarious, but his mental and psychological approach is non-existent.
I highly recommend you buy Farber's book, but please do supplement it with either Think and Grow Fluent (Secrets of Language Success)or Automatic Fluency - Nine Steps to Speaking Languages and Finishing Fluent (Secrets of Language Success Series).
This excellent ebooks will provide you with the little known secrets of programming your mind for your future fluency.

Suspect review! I suspect this review is nothing more than a clumsily couched, piece of advertising for two other books by a Mark Frobose, written either by a friend or relative of Mark Frobose, or by the man himself. If you click on 'Vicki''s other reviews, you won't be surprised to see a similar tactic employed using other popular books about learning foreign languages. Surprise, surprise! These books are all 'OK' but those by Mark Frobose are better. Did you really think we were born yesterday, Mark? Spam doesn't quite taste as nice as it used to.
