Collins Turkish phrasebook, the right word in your pocket

I noticed Turkish language adds in my blog and because I am a Turkish language learner I thought it would be a good opportunity to mention a Collins gem phrasebook. The book is pocket sized has around 200 pages with English-Turkish and Turkish-English dictionary included, it's topics focuses on basic grammar, pronunciation guide, cultural points, practical hints, common Turkish messages (including also some road signs). The book comes with an audio CD not included in the price of the book but it's useful to have.
On interesting cultural point from the phrasebook, for me the Turkish viewpoint is natural, right and unquestionable:
"While in the company of Turkish people, if you are snacking on something (e.g a bag of crisps or a packet of biscuits) it is very rude not to offer some to the people around you." See at Amazon Collins Turkish Phrasebook CD Pack: The Right Word in Your Pocket (Collins Gem).
