This book is fantastically comprehensive, but much more for linguists than teachers. Although I had no difficulty with it personally many students who did not share my linguistic background struggled to understand the text and how it could apply to their teaching contexts. Interestingly enough, they ultimately found it useful for teaching ESL/EFL once they trudged through it, while I found it less practical for pre-service or in-service teachers.
