I actually started reading Japanese from Zero first, and quickly stopped since the first part of that book was how to count in Japanese. My next attempt was with Human Japanese, and I made it several chapters into it when I realized I was treating it more like a video game of quickly learning some relevant information so I could get 5 stars on the quizzes and unlock the next chapter only not retain really any of that information. So that wasn't really working for me, luckily I remembered I also bought this book and started my third attempt at beginning to learn Japanese.
So, I'm proud to say I've actually made it through the entire book. This was able to teach me hiragana and katakana to a point where I can now recognize all the characters as well as pronounce them (semi-reasonably well--ok, let's be honest, I'm probably butchering most of the words based on the pangs on my Japanese friends faces when I try to say something, but that's okay, I'll get better with more practice).
So, if you are like me, and want to approach Japanese a little slower, and give yourself a head start when you pick up your first Japanese book on grammar, I highly recommend you pick up this book, along with some flash cards, and a Campus notepad and just take it slow. Do the exercises in the workbook, practice writing the characters, and drill yourself using some flashcards. The beauty of this book is how its structured. Each chapter contains a set of characters (sometimes with dakuten), so the usual bunch of characters you need to memorize are 10 per chapter. So it actually feels like you are making progress.
Ok, so I did give this book 4 stars instead 5 because there are errors in the book. I'm lucky enough to have some Japanese friends to pester with questions, and there were several times that I sent them pics of some of the vocab examples and they were like, that's so not right, that's not how we say that (that ranged for everything from some examples of color, to the word no (ノー). There were also some printing mistakes, like when you get to lesson 9 in Hiragana, the box of characters doesn't tell you that the last character ろ is ro, or in the final chapter when learning katakana they give the example of the word fuse, which they spelled ヒュース but its actually spelled ヒューズ.
Did these mistakes really hinder my ability to learn hiragana and katakana, no, but educational books shouldn't have obvious mistakes in them like these. So I still recommend the book, and I'm looking forward to going back and picking up Japanese from Zero and starting Human Japanese from the beginning since now I have learned both syllabaries and don't have to get bogged down learning too much at once.
I really don't have any real criticism with this book. It's very clean in it's layout, and the subject matter is easy to understand. If you were as timid as I was, start here, and don't be afraid to take it slow.
This is a great book and i do find it very useful.
