Firstly, can I say that I cannot understand the review that says, as a criticism, that all the book consists of is a list of conjugated verbs when the book tells you on the cover that is exactly what it is. Dealing with the same review, if I wanted a source of great inspiration or understanding I would not expect to find it in a book of verbs. Sorry to pick on one review but I do feel that it skews the overall rating quite unfairly.

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.

An excellent introduction and reference to Italian verbs. The clarity of the conjugations makes it so simple to use and easy to find what you need.
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.

I must say that on the whole this has been an excellent buy. One cannot say that much about a verb book but this is good value for money and extremely comprehensive. It is also very nicely laid out and the print and font are easy on the eye. The introduction gives a nice overview of basic grammar too though I would recommend a seperate book for that such as the excellent Collins Easy Learning Grammar. One very silly fault though is for all the comprehensiveness, one very important verb ricordare or to remember is nowhere to be found in this, either in the main content of the book or in the glossary of verbs at the end. I have no idea how that slipped though the net.

This is an invaluable companion to a good dictionary if you're learning Italian. My only criticism is that it would be useful to show more examples so that readers can get to grips with real uses of different tenses.

I was so frustrated trying to learn Italian...then I found this book! It makes everything so clear and I finally understand the complex Italian verb structure. It is a must have for any student of Italian! The English equivalents in the book made the grammer understandable for the first time. It's excellent...the whole book is so user friendly. All 4 for my kids use it! We even through out all are other Italian verb book...they were so confusing. You want to study Italian or are living aboard in Italy...Buy this book and keep it with you ALL the time!

I think this is a very comprehensive book on verbs and their tenses in every common form. Its well laid out and easy to navigate. Perhaps there might have been more examples of how thesse tenses areused, but on the other hand that sort of topic is discussed and detailed in many other Italian Language books. So in summary, it does exactly what it says it will do, and does it very well. Personally I connot imagine a bigger book on this topic which would be formayptted like this - 501 verbs is a mighty lt of verbs to get through - however if you want this formay 'lite' there are 55 very common verbs highlighted. So I think this book covers everything it sets out to do.

I've always had these 501 verb books , years back learning Spanish & now with Italian....which is funny, because everything here is available free on-line now. I guess having the object is still quite nice even though it stays at home as it's too bulky to carry around (& anyway you can check any verb on your smart phone in a second) . Kind of old fashioned but nice.... + they give you a CD but I've no idea why...

This review is of the Kindle version of the book. It's an excellent source of information about the commonest Italian verbs, with full conjugation of all tenses and moods, with excellent examples of usage.
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.
