This book is an amazing reference for those wanting to pick up normal, every day words and phrases in urdu/hindi. It is organized in a wonderful manner -- first showing you the basic grammatical rules, followed by basic phrases, giving an English/Urdu-Hindi and Hindi/English dictionary, and finally giving you a section full of menus, road signs, and other necessary words. Perhaps my favorite aspect of this phrase book is that in the dictionary section, it gives you sample conversations, which allow you to see how the sentances are structured and allows you to learn helpful phrases. In addition to the content, the size of this book is perfect for fitting into a purse, handbag, etc. In virtually all respects I would say that this is an amazing little reference book!
