I am trying to learn a bit of Spanish and from the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon this book looked an excellent quick visual reference to learn Spanish words. It definitely is, and the visual descriptions are really helpful and well-organized. For instance one can look at specific pages to learn useful words if you have to go to a bank, or you have to deal with common emergencies, or you are dealing with a contractor, or you want to go shopping for groceries etc.
Overall, I am happy I purchased this book and I highly recommended it. You do want to keep two issues in mind, though. First, being a visual guide, this book teaches you very little about grammar. Second, this book is ideal if you are a Spanish-speaking person trying to learn English, while it is not designed for folks like me who are learning Spanish. Mind you, it's still a great resource, but while all words in the pictures are listed in English and Spanish, all the extra material is in English and about English (e.g. suggested conversations, the little grammar there is, useful sentences). Also, at the end of the book there is one index of the Spanish words, and one index for the English words, but only the latter indicates the pronunciation.
So, if you are looking for something to learn new words in Spanish and you speak English, this book is great, but if you are looking for a book that will teach you how to form sentences in Spanish you may want to look (also or exclusively) for something else.
