Poorly organized and ineffective as an audiobook

What disappointed you about Chinese for Dummies?

Perhaps a good reference book but a useless learning tool.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Pimsleur does a good job. I think Fluenz is top of the line in language learning. Rosetta Stone is far better at marketing than at developing good content. All in all, these three are better than Chinese for Dummies.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first Menguin Liu listen. His voice is the best thing about this book. The pace is a bit fast for learning, at least for Dummies. :)

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Good pronounciation by the narrator is the redeeming quality of this book.

Any additional comments?

Perhaps it is worth having a paper copy of this one, but audio is impossible in this organization of material.
