Brilliant and invaluable,

This review is from: The Arabic Alphabet: How to Read and Write it (Paperback)
If you have any interest in Arabic, either as a student, traveller, or simple dilletante linguist, this is a must-have book.
A letter-by-letter introduction to all the characters in the seemingly impossible Arabic alphabet will have you reading and writing Arabic words in days. As a preliminary to any sort of multimedia or home Arabic studies, simply a must: most Arabic language programs give the script itself short shrift, which can be fatal to beginners.

Thank you for this inspired comment: "Most Arabic language programs give the script itself short shrift, which can be fatal to beginners."
I thought it must be me! Even though I can read the Greek and the Cyrillic, I thought my brain was incapable of learning the Arabic alphabet. Many thanks for the enlightenment.
I have ordered this book!
