I have tried several books on Sanskrit reportedly for beginning students. Most of these books are difficult. Of course, Sanskrit is difficult. This book is a reasonably easy (from simple to more complex) grammer book. Remember, there is nothing better than a class room situation for learning Sanskrit, unless you are sitting under a tree along Mother Ganges with a Hindu scholar. Amen.

yes, this edition is unreadable - BUT there's another, published by d k printworld, and also available on amazon

this is the best of the nineteenth century grammars (and is itself a re-writing of an earlier grammar) - though learning sanskrit needs a good teacher

If you have a grasp of the fundamentals of ancient Greek or Latin, then you can use this book to learn Sanskrit. For traditional Indian learners, this book might help to step into the domain of modern Indo-European linguistics. However, non-traditional learners would find 'Introduction to Sanskrit' by Egenes the most useful text in English.

Unfortunately, for Indian learners, the (5th grade and up) school texts are so bland that they take the fun away from the language. I think more senior students should stick to the Mugdhabodha and its commentaries as the laborious path to Panini. A 100 year old text by Ishwar Chandra Sharma (Vidyasagar) was a good read; this text is available in Bengali only.

This book is NOT for beginning or intermediate students. Arrangement of matter is unclear.

I was disappointed. It is more than a century and half years old, so I won't blame for the way it is written.
