أفضل كتاب حول الترجمة الشفوية للطلاب و المبتدئين في هذا الحقل...
بعيدا عن نظريات الترجمة و تنظيرها يعطي الكتاب أمثلة عملية و تدريبات عملية للطلاب و يجيب عن كل الأسئلة التي تخطر على بال المبتدئ في الترجمة, و بجانب كل هذا لم ينس القوانين و التظريات و ذكر البحوث و المنظرين كل ما تطلب الأمر ذلك..
كتاب مميز بحق, و الشكر لمترجمته إلى العربية أيضا فحتى هذا العمل يذكرنا بأهمية الترجمة في نقل المعارف و الخبارات إلى الأمم الأصغر لكي تستطيع اللحاق بركب المتقدمين.
