MattCarman ,

Great Book! Very clear learning!

I started using the paperback of this book in my Cantonese course last year.
I found it very clear and very easy to follow.
I like that it throws you in at the deep end and offers direct translation for conversations in the first section. And then uses Cantonese Pinyin for the rest of the book and only individual word translation. Great for accelerated learning.
The only thing I would suggest is that for the iBooks version to have interactive/selective words instead of having to refer to the separate audio track each time.
