"The most intelligent and useful book that has come my way. It uses grammar - you have to - but is not dry, and it tells you things that you need to know from a foreign-language book in the first half-dozen lessons. It was a breath of fresh air."―Professor Norman Stone, author and historian

HOWEVER...I cannot in good confidence give it five stars, which it would otherwise deserve: there are an alarming number of mistakes that are in the book, not only in the lessons, but even in the answer key. Sometimes an exercise is incomplete, asking you to answer questions about phrases that aren't even printed! Often it will ask you to find a phrase in a given dialogue...and that phrase is nowhere to be found; it can only be found in the answer key.
As an experienced language learner, it was easy for me to figure out, but if Turkish is someone's first or second foreign language, I would say to stay away from this book unless you're willing to put the extra effort in to recheck the answers and lessons, etc. (I usually use more than one textbook at a time for extra practice, so it was fine for me, but for some readers it might cause a lot of confusion and undue frustration)
