"Though this volume is intended for graduate students and teachers of TESOL and applied linguistics, the accessible style of the handbook appeals to a wider audience.  Overall, this book is an invaluable resource for teaching and research."  (Discourse Studies, 18 November 2014)

"The Handbook of English for Specific Purposes would make an excellent addition to school or university collections.  It could also be an excellent textbook for a dedicated course on ESP in a teacher education program . . . The Handbook provides a broad overview of the field, with sections specifically oriented to teachers, administrators and/or teacher educators ('ESP and language skills', 'ESP and pedagogy'), as well as to researchers ('Areas of ESP research', Research perspectives and methodologies in ESP research')."  (English Australia Journal, 1 March 2013)
