This paper reviews the book Reading Simple Texts which was published by SAMT Publications. The book aimed for a course with the same title at the BA level. It includes excerpts from literary texts from 17th century to the late 20th century from French writers and poets plus parts added by the authors for a better understanding of the texts. My review indicates that the book has fundamental problems in terms of its content, form and methodology, and thus it creates problems for the students while reading the texts. As a result, this book cannot be a good source for the mentioned course, and to the best of my knowledge, there are great many professors who would rather use other resources for teaching simple prose texts. Fundamental revisions and modifications on the book are greatly advised for approaching the objectives set for this course.
