"...this is the most accessible and useful introductory book on bilingualism since FranAois Grosjean's (1982) classic. It is sure to stimulate the most apathetic undergraduate and fire up the imagination of the most exhausted graduate student. I plan on using it myself the next time I offer my Master's level course on Bilingualism" -- Alicia Pousada, Linguist List, June 2008
