The grammar section is a little bit better than the romanization, but also inadequate. No mention is made of the oblique case, the nominative is treated as if it is the only case in the language. There is no section on pronouns. Several pronouns are finally mentioned in the section General Words and Phrases, but with no indication that Gujarati distinguishes between exclusive and inclusive 'we'. There is some inconsistency in the transcription, in the grammar section 'boy' is chhokro, in the dictionary it is chhokaro. And there are other examples. This inconsistency is not explained.
At least the cultural section of the phrasebook seems good, quite detailed.
