I bought this phrasebook for my son, who knows no Chinese and is about to spend two months in China teaching English. As I left the shop I had a quick flick through (I have a degree in Mandarin) and noticed that the very first entry in the Basics section is wrong. It correctly translates 'yes' as 'shi de' (literally: it is) but gives the characters for 'wo men' which means 'we'. It may be that everything else in the book is correct but I took it straight back without checking.
