Format: Audio CD
This book appealed because it didn't seem shy to explain grammar. I soon found that it was a half-baked grammar interspersed with overly ambitious dialogues and very difficult exercises.

There are literally dozens of typos. When I wrote to the publisher about this, I was told that they are commissioning new authors to write a brand new book. I think that says all we need to know.

These things having been said, I enjoyed learning the kanji that are introduced bit by bit.

This book could have been on of the best starter books available. I like Colloquial far more than Teach Yourself and this book is way better than the new "Complete Japanese" from Teach Yourself.

Unfortunately there are many typos which I found confusing. As such I only gave it 4 stars. The best book is still "Japanese for Everyone" by Gakken in my opinion though if they sort out the typos this would be a close second.
