This short Italian language book would be ideal for those wanting the bare essentials to get by and impress their friends while on holiday in Italy. The book covers a range of every day vocab that you would realistically need on a trip such as ordering in a restaurant, calling the ambulance, introductions, numbers and so forth.

If you're after a more comprehensive Italian book then this isn't the one for you. But it certainly is a great book for those who're starting the lingo, getting back into it or just wanting to get by.

The book also has a column with the exact pronunciation for every word in the book. This is crucial and not something I've seen in any other learn Italian book. For the price this is a good deal!

this really is short. the picture makes it look like a more substantial book than the colins phrasebook which I have a paper copy of, but it really is bare essentials. very few phrases. no dictionary. A very big disappointment. In an e-book you could fit in so much more! interactive dictionary, audio phrases to get the pronunciation right....

Fabulous as an easy and quick way to brush up on greetings and everyday phrases to get through the holiday - recommend it for anyone who wishes to just get by with a smattering of the language and people love it when you have a go at their language - can cause great amusement and makes life happier!

I suppose we all want something different from a phrase book.This did not quite hit the mark for me as the indexing was not great. Helpful pronunciation guide. Was a bit big for a small travel handbag, but OK if you carry a rucksack when travelling.

We were going to Italy and wanted to be able to get around without concern and this is a great help! Not complicated or full of information that you do not need....perfect for getting you through.

A help to phrases you need with good pronunciation guidance. It is well laid out and I would recommend it.

Found this to be a simple and easy to use phrasebook. I found it very useful on my recent trip to Rome.
