    Highly Recommended For English As A Second Language.

    This book is totally useless to me; It is not for someone who already knows how to speak english; I bought it thinking that it would help me to be more verbally articulate; I'm totally disappointed. Highly recommended for those learning to speak english.... which I feel is very misleading; the author should of made that clear. I give it zero stars.
