This review is from: Instant Recall French Vocabulary: Learn and Remember French Faster than You Ever Imagined Possible! (Audio CD)

I haven't read this book but I was struck by the 'official review' apparently taken from the back cover of the book.
The French word for bread is "pain" not "pan" - the method may work but if the information being taught is inaccurate this is not a useful tool.
Well, I do own this, and the mistake is in the review, not the product.
The back of the box actually says:
The french for bread is pain. (PAHn)
Imagine putting loaves of bread in a pan.
(Because, although spelt pain, it is not pronounced pain).
This is indeed a good method of learning vocabulary.
This won't teach you French, on its own - its not meant to. What it is meant to do is teach vocabulary, and it does this well. This works really well with the Michel Thomas Foundation course. The latter is really good at teacing the structure of the language etc. This is good for adding some extra vocab.
