German Phrases for Dummies tries to be both a phrase book and a beginning German language book and doesn't really succeed at either. It has proven beneficial in teaching me just enough German to travel abroad, but I was really hoping for a simple list of useful sentences for someone who knows absolutely no German. It is organized well, with chapters for travel, shopping, emergencies, etc.—although I wish the section on dining had been compiled by someone with whom I had any tastes in common whatsoever. It would probably work best for someone who had taken a year of German in high school and needs to brush up on her vocabulary.
