Format: Paperback
I bought both this and Point It by Dieter Graf. Point it is a MUCH better book, Wordless .. borders on the childish and is really not a serious attempt to overcome language barriers. I found Point It much more helpful. It is well designed and covers a wide variety of items and occasions and is a much better buy.

I returned this book even though it was so cheap to start with that I lost money doing so, but I was just very disappointed. Drawings were cartoon-like and poor quality. I don't speak any language other than English, and I think I could communicate better without this book (actually looks more like a cheap pocket calendar)in a foreign country.

This little book has been a joy to carry with us on world trips. I am an English speaker with only a slight working knowledge of the romance languages-- but was lost in Asia. My husband and I prefer to take local transportation to small out of the way places-- travel light and eat & sleep "locally". This tool was especially helpful in restaurants, street venders, hostels, hotels and bus stations throughout SE Asia. In our experience, the big cities and tourist spots often had pictures representing food one could purchase. This was not always the case in central China, for example. We had an abbreviated version while traveling the Amazon and in the Andes. It was equally helpful there and made for great, spontaneous entertainment with the children aboard our Amazon local boats. The book is only slightly larger than a passport so easily kept in your pocket. If you plan to be in the "boonies"--don't go without THE WORDLESS TRAVEL BOOK!

Neat little phamplet with pictures of the many common items a person traveling might need. Just point to the piture of bathroom and the other person can show you what you need.

The book is laid out in an amazingly easy to work format. It is very small but everything is there for quickly pointing to and explaining. Where I live in the US we have a large hispanic community and I am only learning spanish so I am actually using this book right here in the US. :-) IT is so small it fits right in the bottom of my pack.

The book is small in size which is its only good feature. The pictures of the items you are supposed to point to are much too small and most are not very clear. Very disappointed in the quality of the paper. Most definitely would not recommend it.

Terrific problem solver, recommend for traveling to any country were the language differs from your own. Also very helpful for hospital, convalescent, or hospice situations where patient is unable to speak or speak clearly. Also for children as a learning tool. I used it to locate eyeglass repair, communicating that I do not eat red meat, and to determine how hot the spice was on menu items!! Fits in a pocket and now even more conveniently on my smart phone - making it easy to find and use!! Cool tool.
