The content of this small book is ideal for students and the keen tourist or new settler alike. It is neater and more compact than the 501 Verbs series. If you really need to know how to make the language "work" for you there is no better way to back up your lessons than with a verb table to learn from. I found the author's introduction helpful and enlightening as well. (Talat Sait Halman was Turkey's Ambassador for Cultural Affairs and former Minister of Culture and formerly of New York, Princetown and Columbia Universities).

So why only four stars? Well, in a word, presentation! In spite of it having a good cover and excellent paper quality, in line with all the other Barron's publications, the interior was in a truly awful reporter's font with huge commas dominating the page (like an old-fashioned typewriter!) and the margins were skimpy and encroached upon so much that in one or two places the last letter was snipped off. It has been suggested to me that it may have been due to a problem of finding a printer in China who could deal with the Turkish alphabet in 1981 when the book was first published but I doubt it! Mine is an American edition though so whether this is true of any UK one I don't know.

So whilst I can heartily recommend this for its brilliant content and its neat size, don't expect it to be the same as the equally amazing, but larger and better presented, 501 German Verbs (indispensible in Germany, Austria and Switzerland!).

After hunting around for a book to help with verb conjugations I found this and it really does the job. It explains simply the basic rules of grammar. presents the verbs in all conjugations and provides a full list of verbs. The presentation of the book does not reflect its usefulness since it is all in simple text and appears quite understated. If anyone is trying to learn this confusing language I would recommend this wholeheartedly.

I have seen much better verbs books than this. It's laconic and doesn't really have any translations, it merely lists out all the forms. It doesn't even highlight any unusual things to watch out for or what forms are in common or less common usage. Also unlike with many verb books there are no example sentences. The print and presentation are positively medieval. A very poor effort.

This is the second copy of this book I have bought - I donated my old one to a friend!

It is not an easy read but it is a very useful tool when trying to crack Turkish verbs. The verb which comes at the end of a sentence is a vital part of learning the language. This book translates the most common verbs in all the tenses you will need to use, and some! As most of the verbs follow regular patterns it is easy with help from this book to conjugate those not listed.

My wife, for whom the book was bought, tells me that it is a comprehensive list of verbs, and the presentation is good.

Format: Paperback
The only disappointing thing with this book, is that there is no English translation and this caused me a few problems. I wish it had at least one verb with English translation to help me understand the tenses. This is the problem when you do not fully know your own languages tenses without the use of an example!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really found (and still find!) that book very useful: I could learn more verbs (still not finished it yet!) than with a dictionary and find the right conjugation whenever I was starting to have serious doubts about my 'Turkish onions' (I'm nearly fluent but still needed THAT book)! A minor disappointing point though just for "fault-finding' sake" is that all the conjugations were written with a typing machine and the body text is not right-justified (justified on the right hand side, that is!). A more up-to-date font like the easy-on-the-eye Garamond would have cost nothing...
