5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 16 Feb. 2011
Soluzioni is brilliant! It is by far the clearest, most comprehensive and most enjoyable grammar book I have come across in the many years I've been studying Italian. It is excellent for all levels - from complete beginners right up to advanced students. For me, what makes this book stand out are the exceptionally interesting and imaginative examples and exercises - including excerpts from Italian newspapers and literature - which ensure you have completely understood all the grammatical points AND enjoy it in the process. In addition, there are online exercises so you can test yourself further. I can't imagine a better grammar!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible!, 27 Oct. 2008
I have been studying Italian for years and this is by far the best grammar reference book I have come across. It is absolutely comprehensive and so has all the usual grammatical tables clearly set out - but what really makes it stand out from the rest are the extraordinarily well-selected, intelligent and wide-ranging examples of grammatical points that ensure a real understanding. For the Italian word sempre (always/still), for example, there are no fewer than 8 different examples showing the word used in different ways. Whatever your level, you will find this book absolutely indispensible.
