5.0 out of 5 stars good book Jan. 20 2014
By David
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of the best English/Manadarin books I've seen. Has pictures, shows Mandarin characters and pinyin for how to pronounce it. Organized well, also. First borrowed it from the library and then decided we had to have a copy ourselves, so bought it from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Oct. 14 2013
Size - 14cm x 16.5cm x 2.5cm - not a pocket book, but still compact.

Cover - Traditional fragile paperback.

Pages - Bright white, thick, glossy. Text on the opposing side does not show through at all.

Text and pictures - High-quality full colour. The font is a little too small. I would not travel with this and expect to read it comfortably when distracted or in poor lighting.

This book does not have Traditional Chinese characters.

This is a complex book to describe. It's a visual dictionary which is broken into major themes. Each theme has a number of minor topics. Each topic has one or more pictures. Each picture has one or more items being pointed to. Each pointer gives the Chinese character, pinyin and English translation for what's being pointed-to.

The annoyance is that it's pretty damned random. There's a table of contents for the major themes, each with a thumbnail. Personally I think the thumbnails make it harder to use it. Next there is another table of contents, this time with each major section's minor topics. Here you can clearly see that the minor topics aren't sorted alphabetically.

The actual content itself, and I cannot stress this enough, is spectacular. It's impossible for it to be anywhere near thorough, but it does cover quite a lot of interesting things. Parts of the body, body expressions, animals, plants, parts of a toilet, etc. It has one for asthma and inhaler!
