One of the most famous science books of our time, the phenomenal national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist" (Science Digest). Richard P. Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. In this lively work that “can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist” (Detroit Free Press), Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets—and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature. In his stories, Feynman’s life shines through in all its eccentric glory—a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah. Included for this edition is a new introduction by Bill Gates.

If you are looking for information or activities concerning the problematic /r-l/ phonemic distinction in English, look elsewhere. If, instead, you are interested in finding out about the pronunciation problems that afflict Brazilian learners of English, then you will find this book a goldmine. Pronunciation Instruction for Brazilian Learners: Student’s Book was designed with a specific target of learners in mind: Brazilian Portuguese speakers learning English as a foreign language. What is unique about Pronunciation Instruction for Brazilian Learners is its approach to teaching pronunciation. It brings together current developments in Applied Linguistics, insights from recent empirical studies on the acquisition of English phonology, and effective practices in pronunciation instruction, within a communicative approach to teaching foreign languages. Filled with clear and succinct explanations about difficult and hard-to-perceive sounds in English, the book provides eye-pleasing and practical activities that cover the different steps involved in the mastery of a foreign sound system, going from the mechanical articulation of a problematic sound to its ultimate use in an authentic communicative interaction. This is an important contribution to the field of pronunciation teaching and, accordingly, a must-read for anyone interested in studying and teaching the pronunciation of English as a second or foreign language.

This engaging, succinct text is an introduction to both phonetics and phonology as applied to the teaching of pronunciation to English language learners. Section 1 selectively covers the main areas of phonetics and phonology, without going into any area in more depth than the average English language teacher requires or that the average English language teacher trainee can handle. Section 2 focuses on practical issues related to learners and how they learn languages, and what represents good practice in terms of classroom activities for pronunciation—including aspects such as targets, motivation and priorities. The chapters end with activities to help the reader understand concepts. Section 3 provides innovative sample activities which put into practice the theoretical points covered in the first two sections, answers to the various exercises, recommended further reading (both print and non-print), a glossary of technical phonetic terms, and a bibliography of works on pronunciation teaching. The text is accompanied by a Companion Website with audio recordings of model pronunciations and audio material relating to the activities.
