BEWARE! There are no sound files with this book, despite the constant references to a CD and Talking the Talk in the product description. I am told there are no sound files for ANY nook book. That said, this is a good book - particularly if you are trying to remember what you learned about German and brush up your ability to speak and understand it for a trip. It is not at all stuffy or frightening - concepts often applied to German!

This book allowed me to adjust to German instantly...German is now an easy language in my opinion. The pronounciations are so well put in this book it makes it very simple...

The book is very informative and very helpful. The book is very well organized. It helps you to understand the way phrases are pronounced but you have to have the CD that goes along with it.

you might think that coming from such a great series this book would be just as good as the rest, however, it was not what i would have expected. first of all, with three-hundred plus pages i figured that it would teach a little more than it did. second, if you thought you should get this guide because of the audio help, think again. you get the alphabet with english translations and german conversations without translations but that really doesn't help a whole bunch. This book does, however, give you a good picture of what you're getting into. i'm not saying it was bad, i just feel it could use a little work.
