‘As well as being ideal for self-study, this title would also be a useful addition to a business English teacher’s bookshelf as it covers a range of theoretical aspects of business, eg relationship-building styles, and also contains a selection of up-to-date functional language. Needless to say, it is also a good source of lesson ideas.’
