I bought this because I think I read somewhere this was the recommended grammar study to finish before you went up to Cambridge to study Italian. So that was a good. It is well laid out in two sections and is easy to follow. Although I still think you would need plenty of other study guides to become fairly fluent. This book represents my hard core study when I feel like beasting a chunk of Italian grammar!
this is a TERRIFIC book,very informative in clear, simple to understand English, very efficientlycross referenced, the subjects are easy to find, and it contains many colloquial terms and idiomatic phrases - making it MORE than a simple GRAMMAR book
I already knew this publication because I had a downloaded PDF version. I still preferred to have a 'book' version and do not regret my purchase. The book was second-hand but in excellent condition albeit much cheaper than a new edition. I would recommend this grammar to any English language student of Italian. It is well-organised, full of helpful advice and explanations and an indispensable reference for any serious student of Italian.
