The book is split into 16 chapters with each chapter explaining and illustrating specific grammar point(s). To this end the book is amongst the best I have used.
The dialogues are as interesting and natural as one could expect under the constraints. There are even moments of humour. The grammar explanations are concise and to the point. There are plenty of tables and illustrations to aid memory. Exercises as well.
This should be no surprise as the author is a native speaker with experience of teaching Turkish to adults.
The book to buy.
My only complaint, and it is not with the author, is with the quality of the paper and the binding. Hodder use low quality paper with poor binding. My one is falling apart. Come on Hodder, do your authors some justice and print your books on quality paper!
However, there are a number of way in which the course is lacking I find, maybe because it tries to cover so much ground in a relatively short amount of time, in particular, the sections on grammar are quite short and the exercises provided are even shorter, leaving you with the feeling that you've crammed your head full of information without ample opportunity to put the acquired knowledge into practice. It's a shame that the book is poorly bound together, the pages started to fall out before I got to the end of the book.
All in all, a good course. I'd recommend doing the course with an additional grammar book and exercise book on the side.
