Recommends it for: Initial learners of Hindustani
Love this book! It held my hand as I was just first learning how to write Devanagari script, was very simple and reassuring. The only thing is, for the conjuncts, the presentation was much less useful. There were many of them in a small space, no information about how to draw them, not big enough (for me) to see clearly. So I was frustrated at that. But the handwriting samples at the back were great, etc.. - all in all a great investment.
Rupert Snell's TEACH YOURSELF BEGINNER'S HINDI SCRIPT is a friendly introduction to Devanagari, the script used to write Hindi and Sanskrit.

For anyone learning Hindi this book is FANTASTIC! You will be writing in no time and your reading in Devanagari script will improve by leaps and bounds, we are talking a matter of weeks! Of course you have to practice.
This book very clearly presents the Devanagari script. The exercises are excellent practice. It's not limited to the actual writing system; good grammar and historical info is sprinkled throughout.
I read it, but I'm not finished with it. This is an excellent book on the syllabary, and I'll be studying it for quite some time.
A very, very clear introduction to devanagari.
