Review by Ben Bullock

This phrasebook is written by someone who barely knows Japanese, and it is riddled with mistakes both trivial and dire, most notably in the printing of Japanese characters where many mistakes have been made. Avoid using this book.

A second edition, written in correct Japanese, has now been published.
