John Flowerdew, City University of Hong Kong
"A highly accessible introduction to EAP. Charles and Pecorari don't just connect the dots between theory and practice; they provide the scaffolding needed for readers to make the connections themselves as they contemplate how to embark on or continue their own journeys of research-informed reflective EAP practice."
Diane D. Belcher, Georgia State University, USA
"Combining an excellent synthesis of research findings and a detailed coverage of current approaches and perspectives, this should be regarded as essential reading for teacher education in EAP."
Helen Basturkmen, University of Auckland, New Zealand
"A truly excellent introduction to the field. For [EAP teachers], the movement from theory to practical application and implication will be very welcome and the level is perfectly pitched with regards to assumed and new knowledge. The economy and beguiling simplicity with which the knotty and multi-layered fabric of frameworks, perspectives and approaches are staked out so very clearly is evidence of two forensic minds completely on top of their game."
Peter Saunders, University of Oxford, UK in 'System'
"This...book...overviews the whole field, providing cohesion between its different parts...For this reason, as well as for the clear and interesting presentation, it is likely to be in wide demand for teacher education programmes as well as for course planners and teachers...In summary this book is readable, current and very applied."
Marilyn Lewis, University of Auckland, New Zealand in 'TESOLANZ News'
"We recommend this book to teachers and researchers with interests in EAP and ESP in particular, but not exclusively. Those outside the field and in contexts that are less explicitly covered by this book, such as secondary school, will also find it informative and practical."
