Or rather, 3 1/2 stars. I have no Spanish background, and got this book hoping to gain some minimum proficiency for travels in latin america. The method and organization are quite good. You start reading passages in Spanish early on. Grammar and conversation are efficiently presented. It demands a certain self-motivation, it's not one of those passive, stupid language books with questions where you just fill in blanks. On the whole, it compares favorably with the Teach Yourself Spanish book by Kattan-Ibarra, which I also tried. The one big problem is that there's no cassette with this thing--only the wise but useless suggestion that the reader seek out a native speaker. Also, the book is dated. It's from the early 60s, and doesn't seem to have been edited much since. The conversational stuff, while effective, at times doesn't sound too natural. Still, it's a pretty rigorous, intensive book, especially for getting a quick handle on reading Spanish, and better than a lot of the junk out there which I've also sifted through.
