Although not provided, it's mentioned that some native teacher or some tapes are complementary. I'm still looking for them but, having some knowledge of Japanese, it's not a big problem for me.
Aspects of this book were dated even then. You'll learn the word for "boiled (i.e., disinfected) water"--a necessity in Japan during its postwar recover. You'll also learn the word for "mosquito net", which is hardly necessary because there are no more mosquitoes in urban Japan. But that's about it for the anachronisms. The rest is modern enough.
The oddity of the book, as others have reported, is the old-school romanization used throughout. You get used to it, I found, and will discard it soon enough when you learn proper Japanese writing. There are reasons for its use, however (to indicate critical intonation inflections), and they are sound. But it is the main stumbling block and incompatibility of this text with everything else out there.
