Learning a language can be extremely complicated, especially when you are trying to teach yourself. I used this man's book to learn Hebrew, and i have to say it is he best book about learning a language i have read yet. he explains things clearly, and sufficiently, and covers all the ground that needs to be covered. This is the only book i can recommend currently 100% confidence to those trying to learn Hebrew. His simplicity and quickness is surprising but well received by those like me who are seeking a straightforward and concise explanation of the language and its rules.
