The worked examples are very good, and memorable; my friends and I are still enchanted with phrases like "estic disposat a sortejar la cabra" - which means "I am inclined to raffle the goat" (!)
On the whole, three stars - not for the faint-hearted, but still good solid stuff. Perhaps a little too solid.
If you're scared of grammar, this book is not for you.
If you're a trained linguist, on the other hand, this may be one of the very best self-study books you'll ever come across!
What is needed is a much more up to date, down to earth guide in a similar teaching style.
