Nick Theobald was born in Wellington and has produced six other highly successful Instant! phrase books: Cantonese, Mandarin, Thai, Japanese, Hindi and German. A lapsed advertising copywriter, he lives on an island somewhere in the Hauraki Gulf. Paul (Paaora) Walker was born in New Plymouth has B.A. in Maori from Waikato University. Affiliated to Te Atiawa and Taranaki, he lives in Auckland with his family. Instant! Maori will enable Kiwis (and tourists) to fly through speaking and pronouncing Maori. It's a small book that looks certain to make a big impact among Pakeha and Maori alike. The book's exhaustive content and humour will definitely get the country talking.
