In my opinion Mr.Tan Huay Peng has created a nice piece of work here. I find that the study of Chinese characters is all about connections; but you need someone to explain the connections to you. This book does that.
Second, I found the book disorganized and poorly written. I don't know if this series was originally in Chinese, but the book appears to be either a poor translation of Chinese or written by a Chinese person with poor English writing and grammar skills.
While the book is an honest attempt at teaching a complicated language in a seemingly uncomplicated way, this book ultimately falls flat. My daughter and I would NOT recommend this book as a way to learn Chinese characters.
You are better off with more tradional methods.
