German: How to Speak and Write It
This is probably the most delightful, useful and comprehensive elementary book available for learning spoken and written German, with or without a teacher. Working on the principle that a person learns more quickly by example than by rule, the author has put together a book that abounds in immediately usable German sentences and phrases on a wide variety of subjects.
The student will find pleasure in the amusing sketches and drawings used to imbed new vocabulary firmly in the student's mind, in the many excellent photographs of cities and landmarks in German-speaking countries, and in the glimpses of German culture and custom subtly interwoven into the conversational material.

Yes it is out dated in terms like, "fountain pen." I was going to Germany and had to cram for the language. "College once again" I ripped through the book with with memories of 1st year college finial exams with relentless college proffs. It was the best I have ever spoken in German in Germany. German came forth with ease for once. I think one must put forth such effort as in playing a music instrument.
"Never Give Up, Never Surrender"
