To see the template, go into Edit mode and look below this line. If you can find the introduction to the textbook the samples provided below often have it, or amazon. You can also tell if the book has an appendix and how much work you will have to do to finish each chapter are you going to have to look up the English definitions of the words yourself? Do you care?

So choose one that you think will suit you best, stick with it until you finish, then move onto the next level. Have fun learning! Because of this, some popular textbooks are not in the table. Here is a list of some books that are not included and why. Nakama - not rated highly on Amazon, seems better suited to classroom use with a good teacher, but it may still be a good fit for some people.
Japanese the Spoken Language - This used to be a very popular textbook series and it does have some good merits, but there are better books out there now. If you want lots of detail on grammar, this series might be good for you. Uses lots of romaji unfortunately since it focuses on speaking first. Hiyaku: An Intermediate Japanese Course - a new textbook. Here is the companion website. Japanese the Manga Way - an excellent book that teaches you grammar in a fun way.
Japanese from Zero - a good book series that teaches Japanese at an easy-to-learn slow-pace for absolute beginners. Japanese Demystified - a nice self-study book to learn basic Japanese and it is inexpensive. More of a study-guide and supplement to a meatier textbook. Human Japanese - software for the PC, Mac, and smart phones to learn the kana, basic Japanese grammar, and vocab.
