Good grammar book, However, the author's grammatical descriptions got a little hard to follow at times. He is creative though, and this energy comes through loud and clear.

Great book/CD combo, just wish it came with a person inside to talk to! Learning solo is difficult, but this book gives me clear goals and enough motivation to keep at it by my lonesome.

Format: Paperback
this book has several bad points. first he teaches colloquial (Helsinki slang) instead of standard Finnish. It is OK to talk about slang AFTER one learns correct Finnish but he does not use this approach. secondly he gives a stem instead of the actual noun (ie. nominative case) in the vocabulary which is confusing. Third, he explains consonant gradation in a confusing fashion which I don't believe will help a beginner at all. I learned Finnish from Maija Hellikki-Aaltio's book. This is somewhat dated but the vocabulary and grammar taught in the book are not. I would NOT recommend this book for a beginner who is trying to learn Finnish on his own.
