Summary: Outstanding TaeKwonDo pronunciation help
Comment: I've been in TaeKwonDo for quite a while and deciding how to pronounce Korean (Hangul) is difficult. This book did an outstanding job of concentrating on just that area. It even splits the Korean-English into sections to make it easier to find what you're looking for. For example, hand techniques, kicking, and body parts are in separate sections.
Summary: Hangul Reference Book
Comment: This book provides a very well written description of the Korean alphabet (Hangul), developed in 1446. In provides phonetic instructions and etiology. This book also provides various translated pleasantries and salutations, but is weak in this area.
I found the book very useful and enjoy using it as a reference. Non-Koreans who have need of learning some Korean will find this helpful. Additionally, the book is oriented somewhat towards Taekwon-Do curricula, so many people who have an interest in martial arts will also find this book helpful.
Summary: Hangul reference
Comment: This book is useful for both novices and people with experience trying to learn Hangul and Korean phrases. The information about the characters and pronunciation is very well done. Phrases could be better supplemented. A lot of information regarding the use with Taekwon-Do is present. A good thing also for non-Koreans, since many of us refer to these books because of our martial arts needs.
