For a person who has absolutely no idea about urdu, this is a good book to start. One difficulty at a time is the motto of the book. You will not get lost, or not know where the things are comming from because it explains everything.
The only bad thing is the short vocabulary.

I gave this 4 stars as it explains grammar in a very simple and learnable way. It would of had 5 stars but unless you know how to pronounce the words you may be saying them wrong.

I would say a basic knowledge of Urdu is needed to help with pronouncing the sentences if not an Urdu speaker to help you out. If you have a talking dictionary in Urdu this is also excellent to help understand the book.

Since I've done a beginners course I know how to pronounce most of the words so I could concentrate on the grammar side of the book

This book is brilliant compared to TY Urdu and the other Urdu books on offer on Amazon. Has both transliteration and the Urdu script. Took me approximately 3 weeks to learn Urdu and be able to read Harry Potter in Urdu with a dictionary! To give credit to TY Urdu, it does have much more vocabulary but for the price it deserves 5 stars.

my husband nagged at me for ages to learn urdu i thought ok a book suppossed to be simple and learn in 2 months the basics. ha i have had this book ages and to be honest have learnt nothing from it the alphabet system was missing a couple letters and the sounds they have it making are not near to how they should sound. my husband ended up buying me a child urdu alphabet book and basic s of how letters sound together teaching me that before the rest of this book made any sense even then some of the writing was good as a way to recgonise letters in words but not as a way to teach its stuck on a shelf gathering dust

I bought this for my wife who is Iranian. She wanted to learn Urdu and says it is a good book. She likes it and since she knows the alphabet ( similar to Persian) she is definitely getting better at Urdu

Not nearly as useful as other Teach Yourself Urdu books I have tried. Prepare yourself for a long learning curve!
