Amazon review for the previous edition:A really good book if you're only going for a week or two...,I had to know how to ask for things in Italian before my first trip to Rome. The book is really useful for those essential phrases like 'please' and 'how much...?', and everything is put into handy little subjects. There is also a food section for when you go to restaurants and the numerous cafes. An excellent book for short holidays, with phrases in Italian and English and a small part at the front teaches you how to pronounce the words. 5 stars!
