Freaky Hook
Excellent !
Just want to let everyone know that this is a pretty darn good book in showing Cantonese colloquial expressions. Keep in mind that the phrases are organized by topic for each chapter. I like how the author includes the Chinese characters along side with Cantonese pronunciation. In addition, it shows literal meaning and actual meaning of these expressions in English. Some of them are funny and entertaining to read.

However, what I dislike about the book are examples in the book. It only contains the Cantonese pronunciation in examples. The Chinese characters used in the example are in written (Mandarin) Chinese, which can be confusing for a beginner.

Overall, it is a good book.
Its great to come across a well priced book that goes into detail about Cantonese slang. Its a great resource, and should be read by all learning Cantonese.
