4.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent, 16 Jan 2005
I put off learning Arabic for a long time because I feared it would be incredibly difficult. This book is brilliant because it takes you through the alphabet concisely but clearly, and after the 70 or so pages (takes maybe a week) you really can read and write Arabic.
I only hesitate in giving it 5 stars because there are several little things like the use of Taa marbuuTa which aren't explained as well as everything else. Don't let this deter you though, it's a minor drawback in an otherwise brilliant (and cheap) book.
