This text does seem to cover a lot of ground, and each of the chapters focuses on different aspects of conversational English, as well as different aspects of "typical" American culture (e.g. American cuisine, American music, American film, etc.) While some of the book's attempts to focus on issues of American culture provided opportunities for us to discuss these types of issues, some of that material depended too much on the student's knowledge of slightly outdated pop culture. For example, while my student was able to complete the exercise asking him to explain how Francis Ford Coppola is related to Nicholas Cage in an exercise reinforcing the terms for familial relationships, he was virtually lost in another exercise where he had to discuss Eminem (that annoying white rapper/advocate of spousal abuse) and Celine Dion (the famed French-Canadian singer of the song from James Cameron's Titanic, a film from 1997). While this exercise's goal was, presumably, to reinforce the speaker's ability to have a "normal" American discussion of music, my student, being a Colombian adult who was not a music fan (let alone familiar with pop culture from the late 1990's) took next to nothing from it.
In short, while this text does have its numerous appealing qualities (specifically its audio counterpart), it's not without its drawbacks. I would recommend using this text with the caveat that you bolster your lessons with something else, rather than relying solely on this book.
