5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book for westerners April 11 2008
By SKN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very solid book for people who don't have the time or patience to figure out Urdu script! Covers a lot of essential material. Not sure what is going on with this other reviewer because he seems to have given a positive review but only 1 star? In any case, this probably works better than the lonely planet one if you are just interested in getting by with spoken Urdu and don't have a current need for learning other languages.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice but lots of errors May 14 2014
By Matt Glosson - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book when I first started learning Urdu because it was in Roman script. However, I had also purchased several other books. I'm glad I read those first. I recently read the grammar intro and some of the words in the dictionary, and I'm glad I already knew the grammar well first, because several things are wrong or wrongly spelled in this book.

Alternatively, I would recommend any of the works of Rupert Snell. Though they are about Hindi (shares the same grammatical structure as Urdu and much of the vocabulary), they are actually accurate. "Teach Yourself Hindi Dictionary" has the Roman script as well and uses a conversational language that is more like Hindustani (the way people actually talk). If you want to learn "High Urdu" you will probably want to learn the script anyway, so having a Roman version of a dictionary that includes high Urdu seems a bit unnecessary. If you do want to learn high Urdu, a good start is "Complete Urdu" by David Matthews and Kasim Dalvi, and go on from there.

This is very helpful but if I can say one critical thing is the fact that it doesn't have all the words in the dictionary so like depending on what your trying to say or a question that someone is asking you, you will not know how to respond. It is missing some of the alphabets in the dictionary.

If this was your first introduction to this very wonderful language, you won't learn the script writings but it's an excellent introduction to the basic language and pronunciation.I love it..
