3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, I dont like it very much, but let's live with it, Aug. 9 2001
I dont like the following points: 1.- printing too small 2.- sentences used as example have no pronounciation Good points: 1.- Indicates traditional characters
However there is no much other options, just live with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is very useful and interesting, Aug. 9 2001
This book is criticized by some high brow scholars because it has some etymological errors, however the information it provides for every character (some 1400 in this book) is very helpful for learning them, it also gives for most of them the old seal form that is highly informative. To learn above 4000+ is a interesting, fascinating but difficult task, and this book is a great help for building memory holds. It uses a old style romanization but is easy to get hold of it in some minutes, it has a very useful alphabetic index and a stroke index. I would recommend it as a extra help for those using the Heising method.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a complete course of reading and writing tech japanese, June 26 2001
This is a marvelous book: in a few weeks you will be able of reading and writing phrases like: "zinc and chlorhidric acid mix to produce hydrogen and heat". Very clear, well constructed with a lot of examples and exercises. It does not need a dictionary or else it is totally self contained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but I think should include traditonal characters, June 26 2001
It is good but somehow limited in scope, I wish it had also traditional characters. However each entry is colorful and very well explained. It is a must for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful and complete dictionary, June 26 2001
This dictionary is not for beginners since it does not include the stroke order, however it has some very interesting points: 1.- Covers every possible kanji used in modern Japanese, +7000 2.- It includes some variants or ancient forms that still appear on some papers or publications 3.- It has a "God bless the editor" Universal Radical Index URI where you cand find a Kanji by whatever radical it includes not only by the official one. It really speeds up to WARP the localization of a kanji it does not matter how complex. 4.- It has plenty of compounds JUKUGO and it is not difficult to get to a second position compound using the URI index.
I would recommend it for a student on 2nd year or above.

5.0 out of 5 stars This an excelent method for english learning, July 10 1998
When I was 12 years old, I used this method (of course, a record version)owned by my father; I learned very fast due to its fantastic and very easy approach. The dictionary with related phrases is also very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice plot and extremely good suspense up to the end, June 26 1998
I catalogued this book as one of the best written about Voyager, Chakotay and Paris character analysis is extremely interesting. There are also some new thechnical details about gravity shields and black holes that give more substance to the story.
