Awesome

This is a clear, methodical textbook with a good balance of grammar/vocabulary and focus on useful survival language. It could be improved with an audio component and more reading and listening material generally.

Like It

I bought this because it was required for an Italian class I was taking. It's not the best book to use for self-teaching though! Better to use with a tutor or in a class because there are some errors that are best explained by someone who already knows the language.

Well-Organized

This compact, well-organized text is perfect for self-study offering no-nonsense grammar explanations, useful vocabulary and exercises. It offers a clear presentation with a minimum of fluff. A great tool for learning a great language. A gateway to a great culture. Highly recommended for learners (adult or otherwise) who are comfortable with a grammatical approach to language learning.

Interesting

Well, this a good example of how an "how to learn a language for a beginner" guide should look like. While I don't think you can actually learn Italian in 5 days -not the regular people at least- this guide offers a decent learning curve and I think is easy to carry on a device than carry an old paper dictionary. I also like the way in which is structured.

I needed It Really

I got this guide as preparation for my upcoming summer vacation in Italy. This is exactly what I needed and what I expected to find. After reading it, I made flashcards with all the essential words I would need. With only about a week of practice I already feel this is sinking in.
