The book also lists words and phrases in Cyrillic, which means it's extremely easy to learn to read in Russia and I was able to read nearly all of the Cyrllic alphabet within the day!
On my journey on the Trans-Siberian railway I shared my carriage with a native Russian from Omsk. He had only a bare basic understanding of English from his education 35 years ago but passing this book between us we managed to have a decent conversation all day! It was an experience not to forget and one I would not have been able to have without this book.
The local did have one complaint, however. The dictionary at the back has 'few word'.
update - my review seems to be factually incorrect with respect to the alphabet - lets say instead that "I failed to find it in my copy when I wanted it, while stressed in Russia". Thank you to another reader for correcting me. I can't re-check my copy it went in the bin.
