Overall, maybe not essential but worthwhile if you're serious about studying the language and have cash to spare.
The text has been converted (not perfectly, see below) to Kindle format. However the grammar tables e.g. The Accusative of adjective and pronouns, appear to have been handled as images by the conversion process. The text in the table remains very pale (it is not wonderful in the printed version) and cannot be enlarged by using the type face size controls of the Kindle.
The only way to get a larger view of the tables is to alter the orientation on the Kindle to Landscape and thus prove a wider screen, which the table then extends to fill.
There is a second a problem with type face conversion. Some accented Russian vowel characters are larger than they should be and in bold. See for example Language Points, The Imperative, which is correctly set out on page 41 etc in the printed book.
There may be further conversion problems but we have not checked through the whole Kindle book and will no longer have access to it.
Amazon have refunded us the cost of the Kindle version. We are now postponing buying a further paper copy of this book in the hope that Routledge will improve the conversion to Kindle. A Kindle plus its cover weighs less than a copy of this textbook and any willingness of publishers to put textbooks onto Kindles is to be warmly welcomed. However, more time and trouble needs to be taken before selling such items to customers.
We are older readers and our normal Kindle typeface size is set at the third from the left.

I don't think this is the best textbook for learning Russian. Some of the texts are way too stereotypical for my taste and the grammar points are not that comprehensive.Published on 13 Jan. 2014 by dessi
This is just what I was looking for, some general conversations to listen to, plus exercises so that you get your chance to 'speak'. I'm finding it useful. Read morePublished on 21 Jun. 2010 by Lorena
