Every English-speaking student of Spanish should have this book. It is been a long time since they explained in (US) High Schools esoteric concepts such as "noun," "adverb," "direct object,"... And, when you start learning Spanish (particularly college Spanish), you are going to be hit from day two by rules on how to use adjectives ("agreement" with noun in "genre" and "number"). You will be bewildered, distressed and in despair.
This book is your savior. (Not your Savior, just your savior). It goes over every grammar item, shows how it exists and functions in English, and gives you a succinct explanation on how it works in Spanish. "A" students buy this book.
Important note (which Amazon may remove): this book has been republished without significative changes for decades: every edition is as good as the others. If you can, get a used one, which you can get for pennies.
I love its no-nonsense approach. It is the bare essentials book on how Spanish grammar works.
For me, I would compliment this with another book on words, usage, slang etc. and you would have something almost as good as a teacher.
-It's the only book I've seen that explains difficult English grammar concepts understadably and easily.
-It's a book you can read through in English and after reading it then you'll know Spanish much better. I wish there were more books like this, that you can just read through in English.
-It's a book that you'll like whether you don't know anything about Spanish, or whether you grew up speaking Spanish.
The book keeps referencing "your classroom textbook," so I think that they really want teachers to have students buy this book in addition to the regular text. That would work out okay. I skipped most of the activities, because I just have a cursory understanding of Spanish.
So, I really liked it. I'm thinking about getting the Japanese one, too.
