'Provides a clear survey of the current state of research and offers practical teaching techniques. The book enables the teacher to be an informed practitioner. Verdict: **** a valuable book for diploma students.' British Council Network News
'Nation takes his 477 pages well, taking a truly useful approach to linking research to practice by providing teachers with concrete ideas with which to help learners build their second language vocabulary. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to include a clear vocabulary thread in their teaching, and to teacher educators who have an influence on the methodology and approaches of future teachers.' ELT Journal
This book provides pedagogical suggestions for both teachers and learners.

Compared with the other required texts I read while completing my MA, this book is highly pedagogically relevant (ie: some of the suggestions appear to be actually useful for classroom teachers).
The book contains a lot of suggestions for teachers in terms of tasks and activities. It gives a brief description of the research that underpins the suggestions and also suggests further reading material that might prove useful for writing essays and assignments at university level.
Having said that, I have found that I've used very few of the suggestions in my job as an EFL teacher at a South Korean elementary school. The reason is that the book focuses on specific tasks and activities, rather than explaining how to develop lesson plans that incorporate those tasks/activities. In other words, the book has a narrow focus.
I think this is an excellent book for academic courses and teachers who want some ideas for activities, but somewhat less useful for teachers seeking an overall guide to effective EFL/ESL teaching.
Note of caution: Since Nation is Australian, there are many words that follow different spelling rules, such as "practise" or "organisation."
