I ordered the book, then discovered I could get the same content for free by getting other content. Downloading the pdf was great so i could have practice papers and not have to use the book. However the book is much smaller and easier to keep in my bag to study whenever I can. So much of the content in JapanShop relies on the ability to recognize basic words and sentences it only made sense to concentrate on Hiragana first then move on to others.
I'm glad you still got some use out of the paperback!
Yes, I believe concentrating on hiragana and katakana first is worth the time. Japanese is hard to separate from the written language and therefore mastering kana early on will spare you trouble down the road. I hope the book helps! Let us know if you have any questions.
