"This book really does have the characters you need to know for a basic understanding of Mandarin. I like the fact that it supplies a proper grid, gives you both stroke order and direction, and show the radical for each character. If you're a new person who wants to learn Chinese, I'd recommend this book for your reference." —Hanban.com blog
"Veeeery helpful in learning the basics of Chinese calligraphy and helping understand the order of the strokes. A must for any student of Chinese!" —Goodreads

This is not suitable for people who are trying to self teach, however it is great in looking up words and practicing.
The book is formatted by having a basic character at the top of the page and guided how-to strokes for each, then it gives you space to write your own. In addition, it has a list of phrases for every character that go along with it.
In the back of the book there are several methods of translation from characters, radicals, pinyin, and English translations.
