Not much bang for the buck

Its affiliation with the "Idiots Guide" series is misleading... Not the comprehensible Spanish language program that I expected. This audiobook consists of typical phrases used by the business traveller - with basics such as numbers and telling time sprinkled in between. Nothing special, not much bang for the buck in my opinion.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Spanish, Level 1

With the title of Complete Idiot's Guide I was expecting more (or any)explanations of the Spanish language. More like the For Dummies books. Things like is it based on Latin? How does it compare to english? Are there easy shortcuts knowing english you use in spanish? What is the origin of the spanish language? How about a list of words that are similar in both languages.

Nada, nothing, it just goes right in to Lolita is at the airport, may I see your passport? I was very disatisfied with the audio book.
