I just finished the CELTA course on teaching general English and needed something more for my emphasis on teaching business English overseas. It's no surprise that I favored this book put out by the same folks (Cambridge University) that created my course. The content is excellent, highly practical and full of model forms. The problem comes with the e-book format. I've made a conscious decision to acquire as many of my books as possible in electronic format for portability, ease of access, killing fewer trees, etc. This e-book, however, gets "stuck" at the end of every chapter on my Nook Color and won't turn the page. I have to open up the formatting menu and either adjust the slider bar ever so slightly or input the page number in Go To to move to the next chapter. I've rebooted several times to no avail. I was dismayed while taking my CELTA course that Cambridge hadn't made more of their materials accessible electronically. This version makes me think they still have more work to do in this area. Fix the format and the book gets a solid four stars. (I award few, if any, five stars.)
