The content of the book is excellent, but Kindle has ruined it! There are countless typographical errors, extra spaces where they should not be, spaces omitted between words where they should be, words capitalised in error, Chinese characters duplicated, and worst of all in the title of chapter three, the word Chinese is spelt wrong!
I believe this to be an error of the publisher rushing to get books out in eBook formats. It is a pity that they have not proof read the book or even used a spell checker. I believe the paperback second edition of the book is printed without these errors.
Font is clear and it is easy to distinguish each character. Material is explained pretty well, no gibberish or complicated academic theories ;)
I can really recommend this book. I had first edition in PDF version (didn't use much) but after buying second edition (paper edition) I can say it is excellent.
I would recommend it to people who know characters and want to increase Chinese grammar portfolio!
PS: Simplified and Traditional characters are used so we are good! :)

Let me say that this second edition is much improved. It is much expanded with new grammar, and includes many examples, something that was deficient in the first edition.
I have been using this book for Chinese self study and I have been making improvements. For some reason, however, neither this book nor the previous edition is used in any schools that teach Chinese. Books used by Chinese language schools generally use books published by Chinese publishers with terrible pedagogy.
Perhaps the authors can get the ball rolling by posting a YouTube class of this book being used in a classroom context, so that owners of this book can follow and study it.
