From the Inside Flap
American Accent Training goes where no American accent program has gone before, providing innovative instruction of the highest quality to students and business people. Pronunciation exercises cover all vowel sounds, consonants, blends, and diphthongs. Supplementary materials include detailed nationality guides for 10 languages: Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Korean, Arabic, and the U.S. Southern accent.
Four all-new chapters in this expanded third edition discuss the psychology of accent acquisition, explain American voice quality, and present both students and teachers of American English with detailed pronunciation overviews. Five instructive audio CDs enclosed with this book use professional male and female voices to complement the text and present in-depth demonstrations of American English as it is spoken today.

I did borrow a copy at the local library to review it, but I bought my own copy to practice. Keep in mind that improving your accent requires a lot of practice, it's not a magic wand, it's just a method to get better every day and speak more clearly to be understood.
Many excellent resources accompany this package, including a phone contact for assistance. Well worth the money.
