There are two editions of "First Thousand Words in French"; hardcover and paper. The hardcover sells for a few dollars more than the paper. It appears that the hardcover has been withdrawn from sales and is available only on the secondary market. In any event, only the paperback appears to be available as new from Amazon at present. I have both versions but I prefer the hardcover for the simple reason that the pages fold out completely flat, whereas the pages of the paperback do not (an annoyance). The hardcover is also very nicely bound; it will last until the next Ice Age. Were I to buy another copy of this book, I would purchase it "new" from the secondary market. You can buy a completely new hardcover (or slightly used copy, if you prefer) by clicking on the button "See all buying options." The few extra dollars the hardcover costs is worth it, in my opinion.
The pronunciation guide found on the Internet is available without any passwords or other proof of purchase being necessary. It is well organized, by topic and page number. The French pronunciation is by a native French speaker, distinct and crystal-clear.
If you wish a new edition on the secondary market, you need to order specifically from the following site on Amazon: "First Thousand Words in French: With Internet-Linked Pronunciation Guide (Hardcover)". There are a number of different offerings from Amazon for this text. For the secondary market, be sure you get the exact site mentioned in the previous sentence.
There is one typo. On page 7, the washing machine was translated as "le lava-linge" in the hardcover. The correct word is "le lave-linge". The misprint appears only in the hardcover; the publisher corrected the error in the paperback edition.
Also I believe such an elementary book in a foreign language should have English phonetic pronunciation. I may be a "rube" but I don't want to sound like one when communicating with a French person.
Not terrible, just incomplete.
