I lived in Myanmar for a while and found this quite useful, especially back when I knew only a few words of Burmese. I would stumble through and try to pronounce the text and fail miserably (though not the fault of the book as they do a good job trying to discuss pronounciation).
Then I would point to the word or phrase in the book. The person I'm "talking" with would then stare at the page for a moment, see the Burmese script, then understand what I was trying to say.
Now that I can do basic conversation and basic reading/writing, I've found it to be a good resourse to keep on hand.
So, if you're going to Myanmar/Burma, take this phrasebook along. You won't regret it, even if you do have to point to the text because of poor pronounciation!!
My only complaint is additional phrases should be included to make it as comprehensive as other Lonley Planet phrasebooks.
By the way, just about everyone I showed this phrasebook to wanted a copy so they could learn more English. You might even want to order a few extra to give away.
