I take issue with the review here which says this book is designed to "ease" English-speakers into learning Russian. It doesn't, and it clearly isn't designed to - it is designed for students who already have a sound basic knowledge of the language, and is normally used as a textbook for a first year post-A level Russian course (or second year ab initio Russian course). It is a thorough treatment of all the pertinent points of Russian grammar that are often neglected by beginners (such as case endings and declension irregularities), and deals with lots of the advanced issues as well. As has been mentioned, it doesn't have a flash presentation, but it does contain copious exercises on the lessons (all be it without an answer key in the back). Much easier to digest than, say, Wade's 'A Comprehensive Russian Grammar'.

If your serious about learning Russian this is a must buy. Offord doesnt beat about the bush with flash presentation or colour coded layouts, he simply lays out the entire grammar structure of the language, complete with exceptions, examples, and excellent explanations. As a learning tool and a reference I cannot recommend this book more highly.

This is my Russian textbook at the University of Nottingham. It has all you'd want of it - grammar is explained in great detail and comprehensively and there are long, decent sets of exercises at the end of each chapter. However, a word of warning. The book has such poor presentation that you have to be very keen and patient to really get the best use out of it. It reminds me of seeing my grandma's textbooks for learning English in the 1940s. It also goes into so much detail that it's difficult to try and summarise the contents into something easier to learn. Technically, however, it has everything it should so for a serious student of Russian it's ideal.

It is very difficult to find an easy and comprehensive grammar book. I bought several books before getting this one and by far, this is the best. It is the grammar I was looking for: detailed and simple to read.
