I picked up this book to learn to read and write arabic before buying a more comprehensive book on the learning the language. This book was great at teaching the script -- it's well organized and set at a pace where I could go through each chapter in a day without spending too much time on it.

That said, there's a handful of errors that take away from the book. As another reviewer mentioned, the editing isn't great -- if you can catch an error, it just shows that you're paying attention and learning! Don't get too hung up on them.

I also agree that the arabic print is a bit small and difficult to read sometimes.

Overall, I would buy this book again. I think it's a good resource, at a fair price, and small enough to fit in your bag (unlike large textbooks).

I'd also recommend Alif Baa (http://amzn.com/1589016327) for learning the script; as it also teaches you bits of the language and phrases along the way.

This book is really good and nicely lays out all the letters in easy to digest chunks. Good written explanation of things with lots of examples. However, there are several editing errors I've found through just the first 56 pages. But in some ways it's good if you can spot them because it just shows you are understanding the material. Also, their are some parts that go unexplained but you just roll with it and it doesn't stop you from learning to write. Some of the examples are in too small of font. If you are looking for a good intro to reading and writing Arabic to establish a foundation I recommend it.
