Are you looking for something to liven up your conversation?
Maybe you wanted to learn some Latin without the drudgery?
Perhaps you are a person of few words and every word must count?
Yes, it is a little book, a little gem ... "Multum in parvo"!

Not what I expected. I was expecting lots of examples to plough through. I was shocked that it contained very little of anything. It took me 5min to look through. A very poor book which has reminded me to use the public library more.

Great little book. Ideal for my requirements as I just wanted some basic Latin quotes to drop into conversations as appropriate.
Would have liked some guide to pronumciation...........but on the whole was pleased with this book and have already found it useful.
