Seriously folks, if you go abroad, you will say good morning a thousand times your first week-- the same goes for all the set phrases the Pimsleur stuff teaches you. You don't need to spend hundreds on something that you can do with a book and making an effort.
It's fun, though (hence the 2 *'s), because it's easy and it makes you feel like you learned something. But try to step outside what your have been Pimsleured to spout off and you don't know where to go. Grammar and vocabulary study will never be replaced by some easy to swallow pill like this.

This is an extremely expensive, but professionally produced set of audio cassettes for Cantonese. The crucial flaw in this product is the absence of a printed text. There is now a well-accepted system of Romanization for Cantonese. Having the text available in this system would be an invaluable assistance in learning. This is particularly important for Cantonese because of the tones. Not having a text available is extremely frustrating...
