Review by Mark Walsh

This book contains some interesting tricks that can be used while learning the Japanese language. Although, I benefited from only about halve of the aids in the book, the price made it worth buying. There is a fun manga which is meant to help with the "if" words, "-tara", "eba", and "to".
