I just received this and I have to say it is very well made. It comes with a short book containing tons of words in dothraki and activities at the end to help with remembering. Again it is seriously well made, I was surprised at the quality of the case and the book. I have not had a chance to listen to the cd yet but I imagine it will be as great and helpful as everything else in the set. I highly recommend this to any huge fan of the series.
Anyone who loves the Klingon language will also love this book.
