I first bought the 15 minute French at Half-price books before I traveled to France. It was so helpful to me in using basic french. Of Course I was not fluent, but was able to understand some of the words spoken to me by natives, and I was able to communicate enough to get around.

Good for a Mandarin start up! If you want to start learning Chinese (Mandarin) or you must travel is a good start up.

My Background: I'm a graduate student. My major is Chinese. My undergraduate degrees were in Spanish and teaching foreign languages.
Review:
Usually people complain about books, and they don't take into account the amazing prices of the books that they purchase. I'm not going to complain, but I will say that the price of this book is AMAZING. You get what you pay for, and I don't regret purchasing this book. With that said, there are several flaws. I'm only a few pages into the first chapter, and I notice a few things. (I've had a few classes in Chinese, or I would not have noticed them.)
1. They didn't include tones. That's annoying, because depending on whether you pronounce ma with the first, second, third, or fourth tone, you could be saying either mother or horse... or something else. This means that you constantly need to look up the word in an online dictionary if you want to learn how to say it in such a way that the average Chinese person would understand what you mean.
2. AN ENGLISH SPEAKER wrote the book, probably looking more to make a sale than to provide a reference of exceptional quality. I can tell because they did not include the correct classifier when they taught about numbers. You never just say "yi ren" (sorry, I didn't include tones). You always insert the classifier (e.g. yi ge ren). I felt they could have explained this better.

So I would still get the book... just look up the tones online on yabla or other free dictionaries, and supplement it by taking classes taught specifically by experienced speakers (who have lived in China for a long period of time... ideally several years), or native speakers, of the language.

I want to start off by saying that this is a very attractive package for someone to learn Chinese: nice pictures, exercises to help you remember, CDs for pronunciation, short conversations using the new vocabulary. However, the publishers made a terrible mistake. They include both Chinese characters and pinyin (which is good) but the pinyin doesn't have any tone markings!!! The only way that you can determine what the tones are is by listening to the CDs. Unbelievable that they didn't include tone markings. Once you learn the tone markings, it is an easy manner to read and know how to pronounce a word. As this book is, you can not do anything without listening to the CDs at the same time. See something interesting by flipping through the book, better get the CD out. Want to review something, better get the CD out. And you better have a good ear so you don't mishear the pronunciations. If they just would have included the tone markings this would have easily been a four star and maybe even a five star product. As it is, it is basically worthless. If you are just learning Chinese, skip this until you learn your tones. Then once you learn your tones, you'll know why this book is worthless.

First, manage your expectation. It is after all, a 15-Minute Chinese for daily use. Yes although it doesn't have tonal marking, I believe it was deliberately left out so as not to intimidate and distract people especially beginners.

But since Mandarin has only 4 Tones, I think the users will get a hang of it after a while. It's extremely useful for people who lacks the luxusry of time, it's organised in a practical and relevant way. This is a really smart book.
