Recommends it for: Linguistics undergrads
Having a degree in Linguistics, I found this textbook to be very simple. But it was ideal for my purposes, which was to give myself a brief refresher on the basics!

This book would be ideal for beginners in Linguistics, as it covers all the bases on phonetics and phonology, starting from vowel and consonant sounds and moving right through to phonological structures and rules.

Particularly helpful for beginners would be the exercises at the end of each chapter.
