    Warning NookBook Users

    I agree this is a good book, but in Nookbook format the Italian vocabulary is really really difficult to read (and I have good eyes). I feel a little cheated that Barnes and Noble would offer a book which isn't even readable. You can read all the anecdotes about the language, but the vocabulary is in there like a picture, so when you go to increase the size of the font the vocab lists stay super tiny, and those lists are kinda essential if you want to really learn. I just wanted to warn people so they don't waste their money like me. The selling of this ebook as it is now is a little dishonest in my opinion.

    Fun and a Great Source

    This is a great book for beginners as well as advanced learners of Italian. I discovered new ideas to help me learn despite the fact that I have studied Italian for several years. There are so many facts and tips you can read it for pleasure as well as for instruction. I found the lists of special vocabulary most useful. Some I haven't seen in any other books, for example, a list of planets and astrological signs.

    Great Learning Tool!

    Out of the 3 books I purchased to learn Italian, this one by far was my favorite. I was able to understand the construction of the words and phrases which made it much easier to learn.
    The only thing I did not like is the small print on some of the pages that the Nook was unable to enlarge.
    Overall, this was the best language tool I had purchased to learn the Italian language.

    User-Friendly Approach to Learning Italian

    I ordered this book along with another on learning Italian, and found it to be very informative as well as interesting and entertaining. I also liked that it listed numerous ways to incorporate Italian study into daily life and the reminders not to get discouraged and/or overwhelmed (especially in the beginning). I thought they had a good idea when they suggested labeling things around the house in Italian with Post-Its (furniture, doors, windows, etc.)

    really fun way to learn

    This book was really easy to learn from and fun at the same time. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn another language or learn some really cool stuff about Italy.

    Do NOT buy this nook book!

    The book is about 20-30% tables, with a lot of information in those tables. They are printed in a very small font that reproduces poorly and are not expandable. That means you cannot read them and you cannot increase the size of the font. And once you buy the book, you cannot get your money back.
