Hi everyone! I just got an email from my mother, who told me that the bookstore in Cavan (my hometown in Ireland) has Fluent in 3 months on its shelves. The book has finally been published!I absolutely can't wait to share this incredibly encouraging language learning advice with the world and am so glad you all finally get to read it!! I really look forward to your feedback and welcome all reviews on Amazon and elsewhere.
In the book I talk about:
- Why you definitely can learn any language, at any age, from anywhere in the world (no need to be a baby or pre-voting age, or buy a plane ticket!)
- How to get from zero to fluency and on to mastery in a language
- How to speak multiple languages and how to pass yourself off as a native speaker!
If you don't have it yet, get your copy on Amazon US paperback or Amazon US Kindle (or Barnes & Noble as a book or on the Nook or on Indiebound or Books A Million and many other vendors) or on Amazon UK or Amazon UK Kindle (or Waterstones/Collins) or your local online store like Amazon Canada or even non English stores like Amazon Germany (book available only in English in all stores just this year).
If you order it TODAY, then you will have your copy this week if you are in the US or Canada. UK vendors have already exhausted their stock! But worry not, they are already very quickly restocking and will ship the next batch on Friday, so order now to have it as I'm touching down in the UK myself next week!
Alternatively, call your local bookstore and ask them to ship it today! They'd need to know either the ISBN-10: 0062282697 or the ISBN-13: 978-0062282699 in the US/Canada, or ISBN-10: 0007543921 | ISBN-13: 978-0007543922 in the UK/elsewhere.
Here are the initial reviews of the book:
“Benny Lewis is the Eckhart Tolle of language learning. Fluent in 3 Months is the definitive self-help guide for anyone who wants to master a foreign language.” Anna Codrea-Rado, the Guardian.
“This is a lively and down-to-earth guide to learning a language. It really communicates Benny Lewis's own passion for languages and encourages readers to take a more unbuttoned approach to learning them.” Professor Mike Kelly, Honorary Secretary and Director of Speak to the Future.
“Buy this book and prepare to experience the world-no matter where you live or travel.” Chris Guillebeau, author of New York Times bestseller $100 Start Up.
“Benny is an inspiration! What a great motivator!” Paul Noble, language guru.
“Fluent in 3 Months is the essential first step for anyone interested in learning languages. Its practical and insightful advice will inspire a whole new generation of polyglots.” Alex Rawlings, Collins Most Multilingual Student 2012
Get your copy signed IN PERSON
Some authors have a special way to order signed copies online, but I thought I would one-up them; I'm a full-time traveller after all (enough to get a head nod from National Geographic as among their favourite of the year), so I will be going to major cities/towns across England/Wales/Scotland/Northern Ireland/Republic of Ireland and to every state and province in the US and Canada.
I'm combining this insane international book tour with a “make America multilingual” campaign and a similar scheme in UK/Ireland, with language exchange meet-ups, and this monster trip will actually my priority for the entire next year!
This means that I won't be far from many of you, and if you get your copy today then I'll be happy to sign it when you see me in person soon! 😉
Make sure to check out this list to see a city near you. All UK cities have been confirmed with venues and attendance limits, and the first London signing has already sold-out (it's free to attend, so sold-out as in no seats left!) with a second one filling up quickly. Check back later this week to see more US cities added (dates and venues confirmed within the next month or two), and soon I'll confirm venues and exact dates in Ireland.
A LOT of work has gone into this book, and as such I appreciate your feedback (positive or negative). So if you own a copy, please go onto Amazon or other review sites and share your thoughts with us as soon as you have your own book! Reviews encourage people to buy (or let them know of a books weaknesses).
If you've found inspiration or help on my blog at any time, then it would mean the world to me to see your review on Amazon!
Google+ On Air Hangout TODAY
For those of you in the states, there will be a Google+ On Air open to everyone who has pre-ordered, ordered or already received their copy of Fluent in 3 Months. Click here to sign up! It will take place at 8pm EST, 7pm Central, 5pm Pacific.
Next week I touch down in London to start my UK/Ireland tour and media appearances (Bloomberg, BBC, Irish TV etc.) and will set a time to chat to European readers! Check my Facebook page for updates!
Thanks to everyone for getting a copy of Fluent in 3 Months and I can't wait to read your feedback, as well as meet many of you face-to-face finally.
Also, I would really appreciate it if you shared the Amazon link to the book on your Facebook wall!! And if any of you know people in big media or with very big websites, who may want to ask me questions about language learning, please put us in touch!
Otherwise, enjoy reading the book everyone!
