Although I thought it would be obvious, if you are looking to use this book for learning the basics of Korean, you should look elsewhere. This book is a great resource for learning the slang
and street language you will need to know if you want to converse with Korean people in a casual manner. Again, it should be used as a phrasebook and not to teach you the language. The book is also hilarious due to the rather "offensive" phrases, but that is merely subjective.
