It is strongly recommended that students/customer buy the book and CD together for each volume, as they complement each other. The student will want to be looking at their book as they are listening to the recordings or watching the video. Michael, as their teacher, leads viewers/readers through the books via the recordings and videos - so both the book and the recording/video are integral to the learing experience.
