In this issue we have seven book reviews. In the first one, Greg Brakefield reports on a book that examines psychology and individual differences in second language acquisition. Next, Tim Murphey and Naoki Yamaura look at a book that examines research and theory related to Vygotskian-theorized inner speech in a second language. Next, Nicolas Gromik examines a book on sociocultural theory and second language development. Readers who enjoyed the James P. Lantolf interview in the May 2007 issue of the JALT Journal may want to read this book as Lantolf coauthored it. We finish with four reviews from the series Practical English Language Teaching edited by David Nunan. Paul Hullah reports on the volume on speaking, Nicholas Doran on grammar, Andre A. Parsons on listening, and Thomas C. Anderson on young learners.
