However, that was with the 6th edition -- a superlative text.
However, somebody -- and I know not who -- completely overhauled the text for the seventh edition, which is I think the edition this review will appear on. The exercises were changed, the pictures were changed, the explanations were changed.
Having known the 6th intimately, I found the changes confusing, worse, and off-putting. Using the 7th to teach others, I was repeatedly dumbstruck at the decisions they had made. Was it because of these idiotic changes that this text now seems out of print?
In sum, I heartily recommend this, but only the 6th edition and before. Note, though, that even the 7th edition only came with audio cassettes, not CDs.
However, flawed as it was, the book included an adequate array of learning material, and I did succeed in completing course with the book, and learning about the Italian language, albeit not in the way I would have necessarily liked.

The text book and accompanying audio arrived quickly and in perfect condition as advertised. And the price was very fair.Published on January 7, 2014 by Jacqueline Litto
