From a 2000 word review published last year in the Journal of Linguistics, Slovak Academy of Sciences, come these snippets:
This book demystifies the corpus approach to language teaching and shows that corpus software is no magic wand, but a useful tool to obtain language information that was hitherto almost inaccessible. Generally, DESKE is a witty, highly-readable narrative written by an enthusiast with vast experience in ELT, whose line of argumentation is very compelling and engaging. It is rich in metaphors, imagery, real-world and literary references which deliver ideas in a more immediate, easy-going and memorable way than traditional academic prose. It elegantly combines theory and practice, which one always hopes for in a textbook.
