While reading this for inspiration for a project idea of my own, I found it an interesting read - yet frankly disappointing in several facets. I enjoyed the view of how Natasha Lvovich found herself and her experiences in learning foreign languages, but I found - notably - there was much less of a discussion of "language learning" than I had anticipated. This is an interesting read, but one I would suggest picking up from the the library.
