This book is an excellent resource for both beginners and intermediates alike. It has a compartmentalized structure to each chapter which allows beginners to skim through the basics and leave some of the more advanced material for later review, and allows intermediates to mature and develop their more advanced skills and knowledge base without having to take the plunge into a more dense reference work, such as Goodwin's Grammar or Smyth's Grammar. Although intimidating to some students (and even to some reviewers), if used correctly, this is a textbook to keep and cherish throughout your career as a reader of Greek literature.

Useless - unless you have already mastered the language and want to use it as a reference book. Get the Athenaze and connect theory to something concrete, relevant, and useable. There is no such thing as a dead language, only priggish elites who don't want to make an ancient language come alive.

[This is a review of the eBook currently offered in the Google eBookstore.]
I teach with Hansen & Quinn at the university level and I have found the eBook to be indispensable. My commute is
about 30 minutes on public transportation and the eBook has allowed me to keep the hard copy at the office, which is great as the text is large and around 5 lbs. At $18, this is a great convenience.
The major issues are with the TOC/Indexing, pagination and OCR. The major divisions of the textbook, i.e Units 1 - 20, which comprise roughly the first 600 pages are listed under a single chapter named "Front Cover". In addition, the pagination of the eBook is different than the hard copy although luckily the scans often include the original numbering. Lastly, the OCR is unpredictable in book English and Greek and sometimes confuses the two, e.g. the contents of p. 829 are listed as "ENOEiδH-OHEEK Vocabulary". Because the OCR is so spotty searching the text is unpredictable and not particularly useful (esp. in Greek).
The convenience of the portable/web-accessible version of the book outweighs the formatting issues. Hopefully, an updated and reformatted version of the textbook will be available soon.
