This new edition has an abbreviated "Introduction" in place of the former "Part I", which contained a lot of outdated material. It also has a new, more detailed Table of Contents, and a detailed new Index which is invaluable in locating the grammar information provided throughout the book.
It is now available as "print on demand" from Amazon, which should make it much more accessible to learners than when it could only be purchased from the US Esperanto association (Esperanto-USA). It is also now available in format for some Kindle models.
The "Textbook" section of this book provides a thorough and systematic introduction to all the important points of Esperanto grammar, vocabulary, and usage. The second section, an annotated "Reader", is really a treasure trove of grammatical clarifications, language tips, usage advice, and short reference sections, all withing the context of short selections from Esperanto literature and history.
In printed form, the book is only US$ 9.00, which is a real bargain.
This very valuable book is an important resource for English speakers who desire a good introduction to Esperanto. Appropriate for beginners and intermediate learners, it teaches Esperanto clearly and well, explaining Esperanto grammar in context, never just theoretically. The second half of the book contains many interesting stories and short texts, which provide further opportunities to practice and use one's new knowledge of the language.
The only thing I can really hold against this book is the dictionary at the end only goes Eo->En, not very helpful for a beginner. Still, though, I learned almost everything I know by checking this book out from the library, and I eventually bought a copy here on Amazon. I'm content with this version and didn't feel like getting the newer one with the questionable artwork.
