Great content, dreadful typesetting and use of colour
on 17 August 2015
It is a solid German grammar, but perhaps not one for the beginning language student. Hwever, if one has a background in other inflected languages then there is nothing that should come across as too surprising, and, in fact, you might find it downright irritating at times.
I could have gone for more stars (for content) but I find the book really, really annoying to read.... there is too much red ink! Even so far as chapter ten in the book we still find "NOUN PHRASE" capitalised and in red-ish ink. Combine this with overuse of italics, small caps, bold, bold italics, red bold small capitals...etc. Well, the typesetting is a mess, and to me it reads like a six-year-old were let loose on the thing with a highlighter pen.
