Excellent for quick learners, 14 Aug. 2009
This book is not for the fainthearted nor for those who want to spend a few weeks learning how to say "My name is ..." and "Where is the train station?" It starts out with those beginning sentences but QUICKLY moves to real Swedish. Those who just want travellers phrases would probably be happier with a different book. For people who already know some Swedish or who simply can deal with the fast pace, it is the best book I've found. I think too much emphasis is placed on getting the pronunciation exactly right in the beginning, but I intend to skip over most of that content my first time through the book and get back to it the second time around.
