Worth it !
I was lucky enough to attend a CELTA course run by the author some 5 years ago and I found this book to be an invaluable resource. I've been in the industry ever since and to this day I still lend my copy to new teachers arriving in the school to use as a guide for their early days of teaching.
It never does any harm to go back and read a chapter or two myself to refresh my methodology knowledge.
I would fully recommend this book as an essential bit of kit for tefl teachers old and new alike.
