The Talk Now series is good because they are available in almost any language you can think of. It's one of the few available in Urdu. As for really learning the language, Talk Now falls short. It completely neglects teaching grammar and verb tenses. It teaches many nouns, but is lacking in adjectives and verbs. The only section where you learn any kind sentences is the "phrases" section, but without any knowlege of sentece structure, I had a hard time figuring out all the words of each sentence.
It also doesn't convey Indian or Pakastani culture. For example, half the words in the "food" secition are english. The abundance of english words wastes my time. If you're going to Pakistan, when do you need chopsticks? It should include pakastani foods.
There are other poor odds and ends. Overall it is lacking in verbs, adjectives, grammar, sentence structure, and cultural flavor.
On the other hand, the recording ability is an excellent feature. Being able to hear yourself and compare it to a native speaker is very good for pronounciation. It also includes a bunch of games that makes learing easy and fun. If you are planning on taking a language course or supplement, this program is good for starting you off, but don't count on it advancing you very far.

This book doesn't really have much in it. It may be useful if you are going to the country for a few days and want to know some important phrases and words before going there but as a language learning tool, it is almost useless.
