I have been using this book for 8 years. It is very helpful, and I am re-ordering it because I wore out the first one.
Thorough. Organized. Pagination as an English book. Lots of examples. Nicely printed. Biggest problem is that there are no groupings of paradigms. For instance, I want to see the possible forms of a Pe Ayin Ayin verb, as TaMaM let's say. There is no way to find one. This is where the now buried but much mourned Luach haPoalim shone--you could find a paradigm for any root.
