Format: Paperback
I just got it ... and one of my main concerns was whether it had korean characters in it ... and it does - so that is a sigh of relief. Since other reviews of Korean books complained about this (as it made it difficult for them to show the phrase to Korean people).

I enjoy using the gem editions as they're small and can fit in your purse (or if a guy in his trouser's pocket - it can even fit maybe in your jeans backpocket). They don't have everything - but most of the essential stuff. There is a pronunciation guide and a English-Korean dictionary to the back. Unfortunately not a Korean-English dictionary as well. Although for the menu reader and the section on general signs and notices they're in a Korean-English format - these may be sufficient to a person who is uncertain with the Korean language anyhow - but will make it difficult if you're translating someone else's words.

It has sections on: Talking to people, Getting around (e.g bus, train etc.), driving, staying somewhere, shopping, leisure (e.g. cinema, sport), communications (telephone, fax), practicalities e.g. (money, laundry, emergencies), health and a menu reader

I have other Collins phrase books which have been a great help to me in my travels. I decided to buy this for my Kindle before going over to Korea but found that it's not as effective as being able to flick through the 'real' book (and as a result I don't feel in a position to comment on the content). I would recommend getting the paper version if you choose to buy this.

The book is good for basic words and phrases however, it appeared in my dictionaries rather than the main section of my Kindle. I looked at the file only to discovery the usual attached files were missing. I tried to get help from Amazon but nobody seem to be able to solve it. I got my money back and purchased it again only to find the same issue.

Such an amazing phrasebook!!! I keep taking it with me to school everyday and educate myself during lunch time :) It's small and handy, fits in a purse, even a pocket! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their Korean skills :)
