If you have decided to buy one or more paper copies of this book – the ideal Christmas gift for the linguist in your life – it costs you the same – and makes a small commission for me which will offset the costs of this site a little bit.
If you would like to read this book, which was collaborated on free by all the contributors and will always be freely available to those who need it in electronic form, then the free version of this is on Docstocs and you can find the link to that on on the channel of the Editor which is http://www.youtube.com/syzygycc
The book is unique, there has never been as much practical linguist-to-linguist help in a single bound volume, and the volunteer nature of the writing has kept the cost of the book far below the price tag it would have if it had been produced commercially.
One of the contributors I am proud to say is myself, and you can find in the very last section how it came about that I was in a position to discover the Goldlist Method – the story has quite a few unexpected aspects in it, and many a linguist will find their experience reflected in it and in the stories of other polyglots featuring in the volume.
It should help the budding linguist to get and stay motivated, as well as to avoid ineffective study methods and save time and money. In these days where thousands of pounds are spent by many people on expensive courses and schools where they often are doomed to fail, it makes sense to read this book first – whether the free e-book or the cheap-as-possible paper form – and then decide on your strategy before committing your cash.
