This is an excellent book, which I am thoroughly enjoying. It is a beginner's book for someone who has never studied latin. You learn word a lesson. This may sound easy at first but later on, when you are learning a new verb ( which consists of 7 new words - present and infinity tense), you can tackle it in your stride with confidence as everything has been explained clearly to you. Grammar is explained in english first and then the latin (for those of us who are a bit rusty).
Mr Linney is an excellent teacher and his web site for the pronounciation is freely available.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has never studied latin.
