I like this book very much. It is especially helpful to language teachers. Having this book at hand, you don't have to look around for another one because it has dealt with current methodology in language teaching so comprehensively. The part on learner strategy training is my favorite because I have also administered an empirical study on it using foreign language students as subjects. In the process of writing about the empirical study, I found this book a very convenient source of reference. It would be more convenient to hold it as my own instead of borrowing it from the library!
