This textbook contains more information about Russian grammar than any other reference book I've come across. Clear definitions and usages for every conceivable part of Russian speech and writing. This is the best guide I've found so far, and I still haven't found anything else to replace it. Thank you for the quick turnaround time with delivery! This was a great transaction and if I need any more textbooks, I will definitely be a return customer. Thank you again!
