However the most useful sections are all the rest, which allow me to punctuate my English with common Hindi colloquialisms and integrate much better with my Indian counterparts.
A fantastic book, that I've been looking for a very long time.

This book is good for learning certain phrases. But some of the phrases, I'm told, are not always in mood appropriate.
This book does teach you a lot of informal phrases, however. So if that is your goal, this book will help you achieve it.The book is physically quite small, so it's easy to carry around.
