I bought the first edition a year ago in paperback. It was such a good book, now I own a Kindle, I thought I would buy the second edition in eBook format for Kindle.
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.

Very good book giving you great outlook on Chinese grammar with tons of examples.
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! :)

This is a beautifully organised, comprehensive, learner-friendly Chinese grammar which is providing brilliant support for the audio course I am using to teach myself Chinese, as an enjoyable challenge in retirement. It is clearly designed and written by authors who are not only experts in their field, but who obviously have a love of communicating their subject to the student in an as clear and assimilable way as possible. (Incidentally, it's the extreme opposite of a French grammar I was expected to use fifty years ago at university, written by someone called Mansen, which always gave me the impression of an extremely grumpy, elitist old man, determined to make everything as obscure as possible and to make you feel a fool in the process of grappling with it. How wonderful that language teaching books have got so much better!

HASH(0x98214330) out of 5 stars An amazing book that provides an excellent explanation of Chinese grammar 14 Mar. 2015
By Tony Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An amazing book that provides an excellent explanation of Chinese grammar. This book however, is not for learn vocabulary. It is for learning grammar which is exactly what is says on the cover so it delivers what it promises beautifully.

HASH(0x982144d4) out of 5 stars which are the great entry point 19 Nov. 2015
By Ilya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am self studying chinese. I started from Pimsleur audio courses, which are the great entry point. I was looking for the textbook to study kanzi, reading and grammar. Learning characters without context of the text is a waste of time without result. Specific of Chineses requires the underlned pinyin for pronunciation (which is still not enough, of course) and having the immediate translation makes it much easier to learn. This is the best book available, together with "Practical Chinese Grammar". The somewhat lower third is "Yufa". I have them all, and just keep reading them over, untill I will memorize all the characters and the rules. Then you can start seeing the Chinese telenovellas with text annotation (some characters there will be traditional chinese).

HASH(0x9a36009c) out of 5 stars Excellent Chinese language learning resource 26 Oct. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I own the first edition of this book, along with this, the second edition version.

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.

This is a great book for beginner's and I would assume for intermediate-advanced as well. The grammar concepts are clearly explained and several examples are given to enhance your understanding. I would recommend this book as a supplement though, you will also need some sort of Chinese conversation book to go along with it.

As a new student of Chinese, I found it very helpful - explaining the structure of the language and giving good practical advice on how to communicate. There is a good index and cross referenced system. C.R. Low
