Pretty good to get you started,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Old English: Teach Yourself (Paperback)
I share the other reviewer's minor reservations, but it still remains the most accessible introduction to OE for anyone who has not endured the grammar-translation approach. To complement it I also bought First Steps in Old English and I find the two books work well in tandem. It's well worth buying the book/CD set, as this gives you an accurate aural idea of the pronunciation. The source materials and the details about the history/context also give you a valuable historical/political angle.
