    "I am particularly impressed with the research and statistics that the author has drawn from and referenced... I would highly recommend the book to anyone working within further or higher education, and to EAL students themselves, as they can benefit from understanding these multidimensional learning preferences." - Jan Beechey, Dyslexia Review
