Helen Gilhooly (Author). This book is not very useful, since it introduces the script's characters but contains only a minimum of texts to exercise them. For those who already know Chinese script, the chapters about Kanji are absolutely not interesting, and for those who have never seen a Kanji before, it is almost equally useless with all the effort to present everything in nice pictures.

I used this book eight years ago to learn some kanji before moving to Japan. I had gotten it from the library and renewed it a couple times. The explanations and pictures are so clear and really helped me recognize dozens of kanji. I remember laughing at the time that the characters for university mean "big study." Now that my husband is indulging me and learning Japanese, I bought this book for him, and he is impressed that he is actually remembering some characters now. The only downside to the book, IMO, is that the pronunciation of the characters isn't always introduced right away. If I'm learning what a character means, I want to know how to say it, too. (They do give the pronunciations but not until later chapters.)

I loved this book and it was out of print, and I wanted to give this book to a friend. This book is amazing for starting out learning Japanese and helps one grasp the structure of the language. After much searching I found it on Amazon. At first I wasn't sure of the seller but I decided to take a gamble and go for it. The estimated time was 4 weeks and there wasn't a tracking option. I was surprised when he book arrived 3 days after I had ordered it. I'm quite pleased and my friend loves the book.

I found the book very interesting. The idiograph was developed showning graphically. The idograph is very interesting as it was other than the Latin and Indian Sanskrit. One does not learn the words but the figure or script about 2000 of them to have a command of the language. It is explained in the book very explicitly and graphically.

If you are poor and cannot afford Rosetta Stone, then this book is for you. And for me, since at one point I was too poor to afford Rosetta Stone. It is very informative and very well thought out.

great to start understanding basics in japanese kanji and new vocabulary. Easy to carry on your pocket for easy reading everywhere.

Yes, I finally found this book. I had lost this book in the fire. It really helped me understand kanji and the differences between the harigana and katana.

For it's price this book is a good find. There were some problems regarding pronouncation. Since the book is written by a British author American readers may be confused by the sounds of the hiragana.

Example:

あ= a, as in hat

え= e, as in end

い= i, as in hit

う= u, as in blue

お= o, as in hot

the two confusing ones are い and お. They should be pronounced like "ee" and "oh", respectively. The examples given, hit and hot make american readers give い the "eh" sound and お the "aw" sound, which is wrong. But if you can get past that, its actually a well written book.

This book is not very useful, since it introduces the script's characters but contains only a minimum of texts to exercise them. For those who already know Chinese script, the chapters about Kanji are absolutely not interesting, and for those who have never seen a Kanji before, it is almost equally useless with all the effort to present everything in nice pictures. Advanced learners will find that linking characters to pictures is an absolutely ridiculous method once you want to learn a few thousands of them. Furthermore, I expected that this book would in some way relate to the volume "Teach yourself Japanese", but that is not the case.

Everyone who really wants to learn Japanese, better find something else.
