5.0 out of 5 stars Great purchase!, 21 Jan 2009
From what I have read so far it seems like this is a great book.

The information is well structured (i.e. shows the more common particles/uses first and then the less common ones), it provides a brief, but clarifying, description of each particle, followed by examples presented in kana, kanji and roma-ji, aside from the english translation.

It also makes reference to particles which are used together and explanations on why this happens on some situations.

Overall a great, lightweight book and a must have especially if you are a serious student of Japanese.
