In my opinion the book is excellent. I have been learning Italian for many years and it is still the first book I pick up to help me ensure that I am using verbs correctly and unfortunately I need to do this quite often. I had the previous edition and now I have bought this latest version. It is even better as it brings together the various uses of the tenses and the way in which each tense is conjugated. In the previous edition the two aspects were included but in separate sections. It is better presented as use has been made of colour which is more reader friendly. It highlights 55 essential verbs and to my mind the book is worth buying if only for that as it makes me focus on getting these verbs, in particular, correct. Then, in addition to the 501 fully conjugated verbs it lists another 1500, yes 1500, and each one is cross referenced to a fully conjugated verb in the book so that you can then apply that conjugation to the 1500 in the list. So, for not a lot of money you have the capability of ensuring that you are dealing correctly with 2001 Italian verbs. The book also has small sections on miscellaneous grammar.
Some people are gifted when it comes to languages. They will have no need of this book. But for the rest of us who struggle to learn the verbs in the first instance and then, with the passing of time, need to check them the book is invaluable. I have many Italian grammar books and this is the one I consult most frequently.
There is also an excellent description of the 14 Italian tenses in the front explaining when to use each. True, if you don't know your English tenses, things may seem hard going at first but you'll actually learn more about English grammar as you progress.
Used along with a grammar book (such as Harrap Italian Grammar) and tutorial this book helps you find your feet quickly.
However, the Kindle version isn't easily searchable. For example, searching for "fare" gives a list of all the places where "fare" is mentioned, which is a lot, and the first item is never the verb table, which is what you might expect.
Given this complaint, it's well worth the money.

this is daylight robbery as a kindle book so do not waste your money. The verb tables which are the only reason for buying this are just photocopies of the plates of the book and... Read morePublished 27 days ago by Sue G.
