Format: Hardcover
A solid reference to have handy. Not an easy read - printed in old style. But the content is rich and well explained. Although this is not a study tool - but if you have made it past a beginners level - it useful to have this on the desk to keep looking back at.

Pretty comprehensive too.

Not for beginners. 12 Aug 2006
By Armando-Malwani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a more condensed and advanced text than many available in the market. It is clearly not for the novice and not recommended for light reading. Its mainly a reference grammer that is more compact than wright's but one which incorporates the finer points of classical arabic. If you are a beginner this may not be the book for you. Wrights would be a better option for you, or if you are interested in something thinnner Nahmad and haywood would be perfect. Once you gain a grasp of the language and would like a grammer strictly for reference only then this book might suit you.
