Publisher Comments:

The characters you need to complete a business transaction, find a street address, and carry out many other important day-to-day tasks are all here. All entries include readings, meanings, stroke-orders, common compounds, and different versions of the Chinese characters. Actual use of these characters is illustrated in sample materials, forms to fill out, and photos taken in public places in China, where the ability to read the characters is indispensable!

This is a great book. It's the sequel to 100 Essential Chinese Characters. I wouldn't suggest using this book without reading/studying the first book, because they progress quite fast and skip over the basic characters. Also, in their pronunciation guide, they leave out combinations of vowels which is very important, but which is probably included in the first book.
Other than that, it's a really fun, useful book! It's not geared towards travelers, which I like. It builds a real foundation so you can learn the full language, not just basic tourist phrases.
