I do like the Lonely Planet language books. This would have been really useful to me in Indonesia, but too many people want to practice their English, so it kind of never got used as much as I had wanted or planned for. The layout is good, colour coded sections and I still have the book which is very portable and compact. It's definitely useful and helpful, and if I go back to Indonesia I'll go to a part where they want to practice Indonesian !!!!
I have bought a Mexican Spanish lonely planet book too, and that is getting used a lot more !!! Arrived fast and well laid out book.
Because Indonesia so large, not much detail about different areas. There are after all, some 18,000 islands. I went to Papua and Raja Ampat islands, Flores, Sulawesi (Bunaken), Kalimantan (Borneo) and Lombok twice. Not even been to Bali ?? So I have to go back.

Really nice bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 September 2013
I have struggled with other learn Indonesian books and I bought this as a last hope. It is actually very good and suddenly I am more comfortable with learning. The fact that it has the phonetic spelling is great. Most books throw you in the deep end after a few pages but this just tells you what you need to know to get going with the basics rather than trying to make your Indonesian conversation good. Just what I needed very happy.
