Format: Paperback
This book sets out with a very clear purpose and delivers on its promise to help demystify the common grammatical stumbling blocks you'll encounter as you try to learn Spanish.

As someone relatively new to learning Spanish but with a vested interest in getting it right - as I'm living here - this book answered questions I'd simply had to leave uncomfortably unanswered (because no other book had answered them or the explanations were hidden somewhere deep within the larger textbooks) before. Not only are the really confusing rules and conventions of Spanish covered but they're handled in a user-friendly way that even a relative newbie can understand.

Rather than seeing this as a Spanish learning book in its own right however I'd suggest you use it as a very helpful reference guide for those times when you're left scratching your head.

I'm sure my copy will get referred to again and again as I slowly begin to master the native tongue of my new home.

This book makes Spanish grammer so easy to understand.
Before this book I had read several books all telling me how they would unravel the mystery of Spanish Grammer, non did.
The doors to Spanish grammer were flung wide open as soon as I started reading this book. It was so easy, the first mystery unraveled was that of Ser and Estar. For the first time I could actually choose which one to use with a 95% chance of getting it right. I have recommended this book to so many people and every one has thanked me for it.
It should be the first book on Spanish grammer you read.

So, I've been studying Spanish for a good few years and am currently in the middle of my degree (in French and Spanish). Basically, this book has pinpointed the little things that cause every English-speaking learning of Spanish difficult since they're quite difficult to compare to the grammatical system of English. As an advanced student of Spanish, I use, for the most part, larger references grammars which, admittedly more thorough, often over-complicate issues such as these (especially, por/para and imperfect/preterite). What this book does is break down these problems to their most basic level and gives you memorable rules for using these constructions correctly and effectively. To put it simply, throughout the course of my studies of Spanish, I have used many different grammar books (and had countless hours of classes) and this book made these problems so much more clear very very quickly where other books and teachers had failed, mainly, as the author states many times throughout the book, because they give rules which are too vague and include too many exceptions to be useful 'rules'. I've tried a lot of books similar to this one, but this one really stands out and I would recommend that anyone learning Spanish (even undergraduate level) buy this book if you're having difficulty with these very difficult points of Spanish grammar. Awesome!

This is a fabulous little book. Bought is for my Kindle but then bought hard copy too. Possibly not for a complete beginner. It helped demystify Spanish Grammar in a way other books haven't done as well - and I have a lot of books!! I particularly liked the use of acronyms - these really help, for example, to understand the when to use Ser and when to use Estar. Want to understand Spanish Grammar better ... buy this book.

It's quite a thin book, but I guess it covers most of the questions a beginner has. Por or Para? Ser or estar? I keep it by my side to answer the questions my on line course has skipped over.

I was really pleased with this purchase. There were several area of grammar that were unclear to me which I now feel more confident with. Explanations are easy to understand and it acts as a good reference book. Very good value for money.
