5.0 out of 5 stars Astoundingly good 6 Nov 2005
By A Customer
I had this at school myself years ago, and I think it was out of print then, back in the 1980s.
If you're learning French or know someone who's studying it at school, just go buy it right now. It crams every little rule about grammar into about 60 pages. There's nothing at all about French grammar which you can't look up in this book in a minute or two.
Yes, this sounds a little too gushing, but it really is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 9 May 2008
Verified Purchase
This is a superb book. I bought my first copy back in 1982 on the recommendation of a friend, who told me that if I learned everything in it I would get an A in French. I think he was right.

The book is a collection of clearly written notes and examples that cover everything you need to know about French grammar. If I want a simple, clear answer about any point of French grammar I reach for my copy of 1001 Points. It has never failed me.

1001 Points doesn't contain any question or exercises for practising grammar, but that's fine, it isn't intended as that kind of book. I've bought a different textbook to provide me with the practice questions I need, but I still keep refering back to this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Things Come in Small Packages 23 Feb 2011
I remember the afternoon I was on this wonderful website, trawling through its pages, without any real purpose, actually, but perhaps with a secret hope of chancing upon a good French book. If the truth be told, this trick, if one may call it one, has always worked for me like a treat: I log into the website, once again allow myself to get carried away by its content and beauty, breeze through the fetching smorgasbord of books, stop short at one that has caught my fancy and end up buying it. The days that follow the buy are of immense anticipation and even a soupçon of anxiety: how soon will I get it? In what condition will it be? etc. But, then again, when all is said and done, there's certainly no doubting the quality, just as their range, of the books at Amazon.co.uk.

And so it was that that particular afternoon, I happened to come across this ostensibly modest, little book on French grammar: Mille et Un Points by Neil Creighton. Don't let its appearance deceive you, though, for it's an atomic bomb of a book, packed with such linguistic power and magic that it's bound to make any reader of any degree of scholarship or proficiency in the language possessive of it, ''unletgoably'' posseissive, at that. What's more, this quasi-booklet also doubles as a handy ready reckoner which, in my opinion, therefore is best used for revision- for a good brush-up, if you like, whatever the time, situation or occasion. It's a real wonder at all how such a thin book can be so impossibly good, so productive!! The only drawback that is perhaps worth mentioning is that more illustrations explaining each of the grammar topics- more elaboration- would have made noticeable difference to the book.

I, however, recommend this book very highly; this is for any avid and sincere learner of French grammar and the language at large.

5.0 out of 5 stars mille et un points - the french grammar bible 30 July 2009
This small, concise book is grammar gold.
By far the best grammar book for any language.
Small enough to carry with you when in france, yet it includes every single drop of precious grammar you will every need to know!
Learn this booklet (which will be quick due to its size), and you will be fluent in french. (although you may need a dictionary for vocab, and a native speaker for the accent!)

As a pensioner with rusty French who moved to France nearly three years ago this book is proving invaluable as an aide-memoire (very necessary) for all those long forgotten tenses. The layout is clear, the language not too basic, and the info succinct.
I would definitely recommend it to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Handy Companion for French learners 7 Nov 2009
This book is well written and constructed with some handy tables. The verb tables and lists of past partciples are particularly easy to use and this helps when you need to remind yourself quickly when you're writing or constructing French sentences.
The grammatical points are well set out, and better than most other books I've used in the past. They're easy to locate in the book too. But the verb tabular format is the best thing about this handy book.
Overall I'm happy with this little book and it's useful for any French learner - well recommended.
