Format: Paperback
This book is good, with usual merits of the series. I want to mention one frustrating element, which is Chapter 2, Letters and Sounds. Some might view a pronunciation section unimportant in a Grammar, but personally I appreciate a clear, concise guide to sounds and orthography in dictionaries and grammars alike. In any case, they've decided to go for one here. A first question might be: do they follow IPA? Well, they have square brackets after words. But... no, it appears to be some kind of rewrite system. And what's worse, no guide to the system is given. Upon brief inspection, it appears to be modeled on the spelling system of... German!

Let me illustrate: from page 4, we get the following forms: Milch [milch], Locher [lö:cher], Bücher [bü:cher], Bäche [beche]. Take a moment to appreciate the supreme unhelpfulness of these bracketed representations for a German learner. To spell out just a couple of the issues: the digraph 'ch,' a notoriously difficult aspect of German for English speakers to learn, and quite handily represented by IPA [ç] for these cases, has been converted in the pronunciation guide to the very same digraph! Splendid, if you already speak German. Should we talk about the pronunciation of the vowels written 'ö' and 'ü'? Just pronounce 'em the way they're written, English speaker! But we'll make sure to convert 'ä' to 'e,' 'cause we can't leave you stranded or anything. Only... did you catch how the two instances of [e] in [beche] should be pronounced differently? Hope you did without us telling you in any way! So much for 1-to-1 relations in the pronunciation key.

Apologies for the snarkiness... I do it only to entertain. These are certainly the quibbles of a geek. But can I tell you about the 'Stress' sub-section?
