The book is written in a readable style, and the author's contentions and arguments are fairly easy to follow and understand. The author's recommendations are specific and offer practical advice and guidance about vocabulary instruction for second language teachers. Even if the reader is not persuaded by all of the author's contentions, arguments, and conclusions, it is still a worthwhile book that offers constructive, thought-provoking ideas and suggestions that a language teacher could benefit from. I strongly recommend this book to any English as a Second Language teacher or instructor.
One thing I found extremely helpful is the "What can you do" section at the end of each chapter, with great guidance on how to apply the info to your teaching.
IMO, the info in this book is very important for anyone teaching English or creating English-teaching materials.
