Half a loaf is better than no bread,
This review is from: Beginner's Dari (Hippocrene Beginner's) (Paperback)
This book needs to be seriously reviewed. The structure is accetable. But there are typing errors (in the Dari, transliteration), the transliteration (romanisation) is inconsistent, the author is confused and confuses the reader in the use of informal and formal "you" (shoma v/s du). There are cases where the English translation does not correspond to the Dari text, etc...
Basically, it seems the book was published before it was finished.
There are now a couple of recently published book in the market which might be better and which I would try if I was to return to Afghanistan.
