The first half of the book, as other users have mentioned, is a Dari-English and English-Dari set of brief dictionaries. The second half has topical vocabulary and phrases -- travel, shopping, education, relief & aid work, etc (As well as some less useful phrases - all the parts of a car?!).
My general sense is that I went through the phrases when I first got the book then found them to be less useful, but as I learn more grammar it's helpful to go back through the phrases and see how they're actually used. I'm required to write in Dari, so I would definitely have appreciated a book that had the script as well as the transliteration of sounds, but when I need a mental break from the Arabic script, working with the English is an easy way to absorb vocabulary. Bulkin's Dari-English/English-Dari Practical Dictionary is better for in-depth mastery, but for a good and portable way to learn some vocab, Awde's not a bad place to start.
