Use your mind's natural rhythm to learn a language with Rhythms Easy Esperanto from EuroTalk.
It's naturally easier to learn something when it's set to rhythmic music, so that is exactly what we've done. Rhythms put your mind painlessly to work: you don't even need to focus! Simple words and phrases are set to a varied pattern of rhythms and music designed to help you learn and to keep you engaged so that you won't just switch off after five minutes. It won't get you fluent, but it will give you an easy road into starting to learn a completely new language.
If you just want a few simple words and phrases before going abroad, Rhythms is all you need. It covers absolute essentials such as how to greet people, basic directions, getting around, food and drink. You'll hear Esperanto spoken by both a male and a female native speaker and there will be plenty of opportunity for you to test how well you're doing with the review stages built in at key points in each track.
Rhythms can be used anytime, anywhere; listen in the car or on the train, walking the dog, doing housework or exercising at the gym. Absorbing a language couldn't be easier and EuroTalk Rhythms has over 120 different languages to choose from.

Yes I would try another audio book from the authors.
Was Rhythms Easy Esperanto worth the listening time?
This is good for a beginner who wants to learn some basic phrases to begin communicating.
Any additional comments?
The title and description is misleading. After reading both, one would believe that the words are said or even sung in RHYTHM, so that they become "catchy" in one's mind like a song or a jingle. Although there is a looping jazz track playing in the background, the words are spoken as if one is in normal conversation and never said or sung to the beat.
There is only one other audio book available in Esperanto. So if your a beginner, this is not bad and certainly better than nothing.

Sounds good, and would be a great learning tool. The combination of memorisation and music works well but developer should check out using baroque styles/Lozanov method.
This particular work appears aimed at tourists, which for Esperanto is somewhat problematic but is nonetheless a valuable learning tool.
