(Written by a Spanish College Professor with 28 years of experience on his back)
Every English-speaking student of Spanish should have this book. It is been a long time since they explained in (US) High Schools esoteric concepts such as "noun," "adverb," "direct object,"... And, when you start learning Spanish (particularly college Spanish), you are going to be hit from day two by rules on how to use adjectives ("agreement" with noun in "genre" and "number"). You will be bewildered, distressed and in despair.
This book is your savior. (Not your Savior, just your savior). It goes over every grammar item, shows how it exists and functions in English, and gives you a succinct explanation on how it works in Spanish. "A" students buy this book.
Important note (which Amazon may remove): this book has been republished without significative changes for decades: every edition is as good as the others. If you can, get a used one, which you can get for pennies.

This book answers questions you might not even have known you needed answered. Great explanations of English grammar and how this relates to the Spanish language and Spanish grammar. The differences between Spanish and English are well described and there are many study tips for acquiring a functional knowledge of the Spanish language. For instance, the author explores how in English one can add various short words to change the meaning of the verb "look" (ie, to look for, to look at, to look into, to look after). However, in Spanish, each of those meanings is represented by a different verb (buscar, mirar, estudiar, cuidar). And then those pesky little words in Spanish (le, lo, te, se, su, mi, me, nos,etc) are explained in clear detail so one can begin to use them appropriately instead of guessing and plunking them in at random. There were some gaps in the language workbooks I've been using, and though I expect over time they would have been filled in, this simple, brief, and thorough book is giving me a deeper understanding and clear explanations now, while I am extablishing the foundations.

I absolutely love this book. It's not a workbook, it's a guide and an instruction. The approach is that it first teaches you the English grammar, then shows you how it's done in Spanish. This makes it all so much easier to understand. As a native English speaker, we are total experts on English grammar, but often times we don't *know* the specific rules and tenses and when and why we use them, things just "sound right" or they don't. So it's important to first understand your own language's grammar so that you can more easily understand how it presents itself in another language. I love this book so much that now that I'm going to try to pick up some Italian, I'm going to buy their other book, English Grammar for Students of Italian. These books are logical and well organized and a great reference. Highly recommended.

It has been a while since I have taken an English class -- or any language class for that matter. Now, taking a Spanish class my head spins when they say things like "present progressive" or "indefinite article". This book clearly explains all the grammar terms I need to know, with English rules and examples as well as Spanish rules and examples. It has been a major help in my study of Spanish.
  • Peras
Not the greatest book ever made for learning Spanish, but definitely a top ten (and I've been through hundreds).

I love its no-nonsense approach. It is the bare essentials book on how Spanish grammar works.

For me, I would compliment this with another book on words, usage, slang​ etc. and you would have something almost as good as a teacher.
  • Vathennece
This should be a requirement for all Spanish language programs. It's been the single most helpful resource for myself. Emily Spinelli is a genius. It would be wonderful if they created their own flashcard deck using the tips in the study suggestion portions. I would buy those.
  • LeXXXuS
Excellent guide for review of English grammar and a necessary tool for understanding Spanish grammar. Learning Spanish is much easier if you understand the grammatical structure of the language, which differs significantly from English. This book has helped me significantly.
As far as I know there isn't anything like this book on a bunch of different levels.

-It's the only book I've seen that explains difficult English grammar concepts understadably and easily.
-It's a book you can read through in English and after reading it then you'll know Spanish much better. I wish there were more books like this, that you can just read through in English.
-It's a book that you'll like whether you don't know anything about Spanish, or whether you grew up speaking Spanish.

The book keeps referencing "your classroom textbook," so I think that they really want teachers to have students buy this book in addition to the regular text. That would work out okay. I skipped most of the activities, because I just have a cursory understanding of Spanish.

So, I really liked it. I'm thinking about getting the Japanese one, too.
