Editorial Reviews

'As a teacher using the Amazing People ELT Readers in an Extensive Reading Project, I'm as happy as my students are: motivating topics/real people, interesting facts and a great alternative to Graded Reader fiction.

The buzz in the classroom when we're swopping books is tangible.'Hania Bociek, Zürich, Switzerland
