I bought the English version although I had read the German version first. Reason was simply that I wanted to have the original books for Klingon in order to compile a (software) dictionary for Klingon with ALL (canon) Klingon words along with alot of original sentences from Okrand. This book served this purpose well and I have now finished going through it. Once again I enjoyed it. :)
Does Goodreads count the English and German version as two books in my list? Hmm...

Quite good, many new information, a lot of new words and better descriptions of some aspects of the Klingon grammar. Also a guide about the Klingon dialects. Pretty nice. And the German translation is really, really good — they have learned since the Klingon Dictionary. ;)
However, it's a bit unstructured.

Hoch nuH peqel!

Sometimes overlooked, this volume is critical to learning your new language.

Keep practicing, and you may yet survive a tour of worlds of the Empire.

Qapla'!!!

Some good pieces about the Klingon culture, but the real gem is the word list at the back. Good stuff.
