5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Available Reference in English, March 5, 2003
This review is from: Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar (Paperback)
This book's low average rating is, unfortunately, a reflection not of its quality, but of the error of a previous reviewer whose mistake was to expect the book to be a basic grammar rather than a reference grammar for more advanced students. Put simply, there is no better Latin reference grammar available in English. If there is, I am not aware of it. This is the only Latin grammar that rivals Smyth's Greek Grammar in its depth and clarity. That said, students should note that this is a thorough descriptive reference grammar, not a grammar meant to teach Latin or to provide the intermediate student with a basic reference. Those seeking a simpler reference more suitable to the intermediate level may benefit from Bennet's grammar of the same title.

I actually did start with this (an older edition printed in 1913). Wasn't easy, but I found ways to create lessons for myself by using it with a few parallel-translation latin texts. Not what I would recommend to anyone who didn't have time on their hands, though.
