Although Laura Bertone warns us in the preface that her book “... is not a technical treatise on interpretation subjects…” and “… has not been specifically designed for teaching interpretation...” the author draws on many years experience as a professional interpreter; her material, analysis and commentary are a wink of complicity to readers from an interpreting background, although the book is certainly of potential interest to a wider readership.
