Fun and Informative.

An interesting combination of history, culture, tips, and phrases. You will definately not be bored reading this book. I live in Italy and have learn many of his cultural tips the hard way. The phrases will be just as helpful as what you can find in a more formal intro to Italian guide book, but far more memorable. Each chapter covers one location (i.e. coffee bar, market, airport, etc) which is very helpful if you are gearing up.
Some of the phrases are a bit outdated, and I wish it was a bit more extensive, but I laughed and learned way more than any other Italian book I have picked up.
