I had to buy this for a semester abroad in China and, truth be told, I never used it. I looked through it and I found some interesting stuff but using a phrasebook to get around isn't recommended except for emergencies (like transportation). Also, it helps to have some understanding of Chinese anyway because you can't just read the words of the page phonetically- you have to say the tone too.

A life saver when I bought it. I learned more from this book than I did from any interactive learning tool. Well organized and quick to find what you need.

Lonely Planet miscalculated on this one. In this Fifth Edition, they decided to "improve" upon the rather intimidating Pinyin system for Romanizing Chinese by creating their own pronunciation system that is more natural for English speakers than Pinyin.

Unfortunately, Pinyin is the official Romanization system in the PRC: street signs, highway signs, shop signs, and maps use Pinyin. Readers of this book may be good at pronouncing the words in it, but they will not be able to handle the Romanized Chinese they see on the street.

I've located a used copy of the Fourth Edition (2000), which uses Pinyin, and I'll toss my Fifth Edition. Others seem to be doing the same, since used Fourth Editions are now selling at 2-3 times the price of new Fifth Editions! Too bad, because the Fifth Edition otherwise has a modern, attractive layout that is a genuine improvement.

This book has many problems besides the awful phonetics. A lot of the phrases in it don't make sense in the context their intended for, and the ones that do make sense are usually outdated. I also found that in the glossary of the book some of the words have incorrect or even opposite definitions. I can't beleive something like this can get published.

This phrasebook doesn't use the pinyin spellings of the words so natives can't read the text. It wasn't that helpful of a book and I had much better luck with just a translation dictionary.

The abandonment of Pinyin was a devastating mistake. The new edition is useless for learning Chinese or speaking it. I have purchased at least six of the older editions. They will be much sought after now!

Thank you! All is exellent
This book is written in the beijing style of mandarin which isn't how they ever teach mandarin in the US or how they speak it elsewhere. it is pretty much useless for learning mandarin if you want to learn it the right way or speak it anywhere other than beijing.
