Frankly the author displays genius in how he ties elements together, so based on my knowlegde of English language and also knowlegde of German grammar all is quickly making sense. After year on year starting with the same ten words over again, this method is working great and my wife a native Slovak is amazed. Slovak language is complex and she admits she couldn't teach but this book puts the necessary logic structure in place for a non-native to assimilate the building blocks.
I didn't order the audio. Instead I ask my wife for pronounciation occasionally, though in fact quite helpful too are two iPad apps. One is Learnbots Slovak by Edutainment, which helps you rehearse verb conjugations. The other is Byki learning flash cards, which is available on the web and as iPad app. The Byki is great for building and memorizing vocabulary and for pronounciation. Lastly, I use Quickoffice on the iPad to write exercises. The Slovak keyboard available makes writing on the iPad a piece of cake.
I had interviewed Berlitz in the US after talking to them in Slovakia, and unfortunately their virtual classroom approach didn't seem particularly special and of course expensive.
I downloaded the Kindle version that reads well on my iPad. Pagination is at first cumbersome, but with the use of bookmarks in fact it's quite manageable.

Some of the other reviewers criticize this book for not being a systematic grammar. That's fair, since it's not a systematic grammar (though it does have grammar tables in the appendix). By introducing some major grammar points gradually over several chapters, it can be frustrating as a reference source.
As a learning tool, however, there's a lot to be said for introducing things slowly. If you work systematically through this book and its exercises, and repeat (or memorize) dialogues, you'll learn Slovak. Some of the material is boring ("Zuzka hears a train crossing the bridge") though Naughton occasionally livens things up ("Don't be afraid! Kiss me!"). I'm not sure that any language-book texts can really be exciting. However, if I were giving Naughton advice, I'd add more paragraph-length texts about Slovakia and its people, along the lines of the Bratislava texts late in the book.
