Sadly, so far I have not found a better book, and I have read several. The high school text books are the absolute worst. It must be a rule that they be boring, fluffy and content-lite.
So, consider a book such as this to be a necessary but insufficient tool to learn the language on your own. Use, in addition, one of the many computerized learning programs, which are essentially flash cards; they are the best way to learn vocabulary. Personally, I like duolingo.com, which is free. And the Rick Steves phrase books are the absolute best of that category. If you use combination of a computer program, a phrase book and a grammar book, you can learn enough French (or other language) to be a good tourist.
Rather than deal with the frustration, I simply removed the book from my library. This is my first experience of this nature, having already purchased dozens of Kindle books. I will certainly be more careful in the future, checking out "samples", where available.
Also, for those who do not have a tutor and are confused about the pronunciation. This book may not have a CD but I feel it explains it very well & detailed how to pronounce the different letters and characters.
I would buy it again, and def. recommend it!
