I was really excited to find this book because I've tried off and on to learn different languages, but was never successful. I was even praised in beginning level courses for my quick pick up on the material, but whenever I reached something beyond the basics I would fumble. Listening to this book kind of pointed out to me why this was happening. I have found myself listening and re-listening to this book finding new points to draw from and it makes me excited and always revitalized ready to continue my language learning journey assured that I will succeed this time.
I will say that if you are willing to delve into his actual website you can find all this information and maybe even find a video of the author telling it to you. I clearly was not and enjoy the portability of this book in Audio form.
In a short summary: If you find yourself stuck in your language learning journey and cannot figure out why, maybe give this book a listen and see if it can point you in the right direction.
I really enjoyed this as an audio book because when you listen to a lesson again you can play it faster to really check you mastery of the material that it covered. I do have a mild issue where the speakers will say the same word at least three different ways and wont stay consistent with what they originally told you. The only reason I take issue with this is the constant reminder to "check your pronunciation against the native speaker" which if you don't know how they will pronounce it this time how can you?
I'm also sad that they don't have the next level of this. Otherwise this is a good starter set to learning Hindi, it kind of stops short of being really useful for traveling in India, but great start.
