This book will provide you with the 100 verbs you have to learn first to get around when traveling or interacting with German-speaking people. The phrases are presented in a very simple fashion: past, present, and future. No complications with the many different conjugations and their weird names. Straight and simple.

Would you consider the audio edition of German: Verbs Fast Track Learning to be better than the print version?

This is a great way to get yourself used to hearing the basic tenses with the most used verbs. You can really say and understand a lot with just 100 verbs. 501 German Verbs Fully Conjugated is more thorough but would probably be overkill.

What other book might you compare German: Verbs Fast Track Learning to and why?

501 German Verbs Fully Conjugated, German Fast Track Learning: The 1000 most used words.

Where does German Level 1 Lessons 11-15 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've used Innovative Language Learning all the way through. I've used the Sarah Retter books. I've gone through all levels of Duolingo and kept my lingots or whatever those are called full. I've use Fun Easy Learn. I listen to German music all day. I subscribe to several German youtube channels. This system and Paul Noble's are the best for forcing me to form sentences of my own, which is such a useful skill. And of course, I'm sure this system has so much more to offer. Right now I'm on lessons 11-15. It's very effective on the road. Just review the reading when you get home.

Any additional comments?

Keep at it.

If you don't like this book's style at first, then try Innovative Language Learning or the Duolingo app for a while. Those are geared towards being more fun. Afterwards, you'll want to come back to something like this when you're more serious.
