"One of the keys to learning Japanese is stroke order and drilling until each stroke is second nature. Jim Gleeson put together a wonderful workbook that lets you do just that." --Japan Powered blog
"Writing Japanese Katakana: An Introductory Japanese Language Workbook is a good book for those who wish to learn Japanese. When studying Japanese, you should start by learning to read and write hiragana, and then, you should study katakana next. Not only will it help you to be able to read signs, menus, etc in Japan, but knowing and using katakana will help you to pronounce foreign words and onomatopoeia in the way that Japanese people understand them." --Tokyo Five blog
"Each character is introduced with brushed, handwritten, and typed samples which enhance character recognition. Extensive writing space allows for maximum practice to facilitate memorization and ensure proper character formation. Entertaining illustrations and amusing examples of onomatopoeic usage of hiragana in Japanese writings further reinforce memorization in a fun way." --Just One Cookbook blog
