Reviews

“The book is a commendable addition to the current repertoire of TPR. The biggest strength lies in its focus on the fundamental importance of solid theoretical foundations for TPR while shedding new light on improving methodological rigor in empirical research endeavors. … the book serves as a timely renewed call for further efforts to address this need.” (Rongbo Fu, The Journal of Specialised Translation, Issue 33, January, 2020)
