Not a great value.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have no idea.

Would you ever listen to anything by Gwyneth Strong and Penny Dyer again?

No.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed in the quality. Much of it seemed to be recorded out in public - with poor recording equipment.

Any additional comments?

Seems like she was giving some woman that was with her a lesson. She recorded that lesson, and decided to resell that lesson to the public. Essentially you are paying to listen in on someone else's lesson.

A decent beginning

Certainly not the definitive book on Cockney, but a nice introduction to the lovely accent.
