Binding: Paperback, 184 pages

This textbook remains a fine grammar book with focused, grammar based exercises. Smaller and cheaper than the Azar books, people looking for drills to improve "look-see-do" speaking exercises should be satisfied.

However, most authentic conversations include open ended questions, a topic, and follow-up questions. The title, therefore, seems quite misleading. Several solid conversation books exist - from Discussion Starters and Talking Your Heads Off for intermediate ESL students to Compelling Conversations and Discussions A-Z for advanced students. Therefore, I strongly recommend a conversation book if you are looking for a conversation book - especially if the goal is to tutor business professionals.
