I couldn't rate it zero, so I gave it a "1".
Picture believing what you've read in the description of the book and then having none of it match up with the reality. This book was poorly written, poorly represented in the description, and a nightmare to navigate through. I couldn't imagine that anyone would be able to read, understand, or speak more or better Thai after wasting their money on this book.
PASS on this lame attempt to grab your money and run. I wish I had.
