When this book jacket says that it is user-friendly, it undersells how helpful it truly is. I began basic Greek in seminary using a different grammar, and coupled with the poorest teacher I've ever had, the latter text was not at all helpful. This volume, however, was a wonderful, helpful, and highly streamlined introduction to Koine Greek. I highly recommend this introduction for the beginning student of Greek.
