3.0 out of 5 stars save your money 11 Jan. 2008
By TP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not worth the amount being asked for it. It is practically useless for anyone with a decent background in Spanish. You may pick up a few phrases you weren't aware of but the format is not conducive to really helping you improve your business Spanish. If you have no background in Spanish at all, I still don't reccommend it, you won't be able to do anything but try and memorize phrases and will probably do it poorly. You'd be better of either going with a cheap phrase book in that case, or really learning the language with a good grammar book if you are the self-study type, or taking a class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly invaluable 29 Mar. 2010
By Artur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I know how reviews found here can put you off buying what on closer inspection turns out to be a real gem. (and vice versa). This book's simple cut-to-the-chase bilingual approach is too rare in english/american language teaching handbooks these days. The book is chock-full of immediately applicable content, which is also very refreshing compared to what in 90% of cases on the market seems like spoon-feeding of knowledge. For those who work in an office with 'hispanoablantes' or must deal with them on the phone or in person in business environment, this book is priceless. The price is steep (is that without the audio?) but try to leaf through it in a bookstore and you'll see I'm right. As to beginners still in need of remedial grammar classes - just stay away from it, but not too long as undoubtedly it may speed up you business spanish skills in record time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Finalmente. 29 Nov. 2013
By J. Hickmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is an English/Spanish reader composed completely of dialogues that a business person would need. It is for high intermediate and advanced Spanish speakers (or English speakers) who simply need exposure to business situations. With serious practice/repetition you will be able to break out of beginner Spanish and move fluently throughout the workday. Those in customer service, sales, or even the executive level will find this book useful.

The dialogues are separated into two categories: telephone and face to face. You learn how to answer the phone, set appointments, handle complaints, make reservations, request payment, check in at the airport, deal with customs, ask for a loan, sales, and more.

Below the Spanish dialogues are footnotes that offer further explanations. It is a phrasebook on steroids. I don't know why advanced products are so poorly promoted. I have been limping along with Spanish for years and this is the first time I have ever seen anything so comprehensive. Most products are usually targeted towards the beginner or the lazy (quick, easy, fast).

The authors also have a book devoted to just correspondence and a third book that is both correspondence and dialogue. One complaint is that the audio is no longer available. Repeated listening is the best way to learn. The company could easily offer the audio for download for about $25. Also, in the book version, the type is smaller than usual.
