My husband speakers Mandarin Chinese and has been telling me to learn Chinese for years. I've been too busy (and lazy) to pick up resources but finally caved in. This book fits my needs like a glove. It goes straight to content without any unnecessary info: how to pronounce pinyin, rule of thumb grammar formulas, everyday phrases, the most common verbs, the most common adjectives, etc.
