The book is well-written and explains clearly everything you want to know about Toki Pona and, actually, learn the language.
This pu book is a must for all Toki Pona learners and those just interested in the language constructed by jan Sonja, the author.
Frankly speaking, I skipped the parts with quotations from religious sources. I am not religious at all and I don't think anyone will use Toki Pona to quote from the Bible or other sacred texts.
tenpo pini la mi wile pali e toki pona kepeken nimi lili. mi pilin pona tan ni: mi jo ni pu!
tenpo mute la mi sitelen lape kepeken toki pona!
120 words. one language. you can talk with people from all over the world.
in the past, I wanted to make a simple language using only a few words (and no synonyms). I am happy that I now have this book.
sometimes, I even dream in Toki Pona!
I learned the whole vocabulary in five days, and after two weeks I was writing toki pona poetry, creating toki pona language art using sitelen pona (a simple hieroglyphic writing system) and generating beautiful Mayan-like non-linear toki pona glyphs that look like totem poles (search the web for 'sitelen sitelen toki pona' for this). Learning toki pona is easy. Thinking and speaking in Toki Pona is calming and enlightening. Facebook has some great Toki Pona groups to support your learning and expression, with thousands of group members.
This excellent book will get you started - I highly recommend getting it and learning a new way to think and talk.
