5.0 out of 5 stars It'll get you talking - fast! 16 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Really great little phrase book - and good value too. It's so much more convenient than the standard phrase book layout in sections that never correspond to what you want to say. The pronunciation guide makes sense, it's got most of the words I needed while I was there, and I really made a lot of progress using it. If you're going to India - buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy size book 8 July 2013

A very neat little book, which is small enough to carry about in my handbag. It has many useful tips and suggested pronounciations, but also has stacks of invaluable information and suggested dialogue. It will be coming on holiday with me shortly!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 15 Dec 1999
By Michelle Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy in India 28 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The book is very handy to carry around. The translations are colloquial and useful as opposed to Indian books that give every definition no matter how obsure. There is a problem with using boldface to indicate nasals, but the boldface is very hard to notice. Also noun gender isn't indicated. It is the book I carry in my pocket in India.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brief but thorough 2 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is very handy for those who want to learn the basic structure of and handy phrases in Hindi or Urdu. Good for travelers, both in content and in size--it is small and easy to carry around. As an Indian and native Hindi speaker, I found this to be a good introduction to the language for those seeking only that much.
