Riddled with errors, so cannot be relied on
on 4 June 2015
A book of this nature, to enable people who already know some Latin to identify those further words that are worth memorising, is welcome, but a cursory examination suggests that this book contains too many errors to be fit for purpose.
Flicking through this book when I received it, I noticed two typographical errors on page 120: 'chapter' appears as 'chpater' and 'topical' appears as 'topcial'. A book of this nature needs to be proof-read several times by different people to ensure that all errors are eliminated. Since two such obvious typos in English words remain, the reader cannot confident in the proof reading, so cannot be confident that the Latin is error-free. I have also noticed several errors in the Latin itself, in particular missing or incorrect macrons. Since I cannot rely on its accuracy I have abandoned this book and cannot recommend it.
