I bought this book as a first resource to learn the Arabic language, after having studied an introductory book to learn how to read and write in the Arabic alphabet.
The book is well structured, and enables the student to analyse and understand simple Quranic verses after a few lessons.
However, grammatical explanations are extremely concise (even though clear), and there are very few exercises. The student might be overwhelmed by the depth of the material after the first few pages.

I use this book to teach students Arabic with the aim of being able to read the Quran in it's original Arabic text. I have always used Haywood and Nahmad's A New Arabic Grammar, to teach and while I prefer the depth of the latter, the brief "bite-size" nature of the chapters in this book, make it more accessible for students. However if you are looking for a teach-yourself kind of book, this will probably not be sufficient. Hence four rather than five stars.

I don't have any other frame of reference for books on learning Arabic, but I found this one to be helpful. It's pretty limited in scope though, so if you're wanting to get serious about learning Arabic, there are probably better resources. For the casual learner like myself, give it a try.
