A Comprehensive Russian Grammar, third edition, Terence Wade This is a 600 page book, and I've only read about 100 pages of it. I have no desire to work all the way through it systematically; I just look up things that need clarification. I believe my level is B2. So please take these things into account when you read this review. From my personal experience, what I've read in Amazon reviews and language websites, this it the most thorough Russian Grammar there is for English speakers. For example, there are 50 pages covering aspect, 12 pages contrasting в and на, 20 pages on verbs of motion, etc. I've seen several reviews criticize the coverage of verbs of motion as being "light". Compared to other items, it does seem a little light, but it's more thorough than all the other english based sources I've used. There are several books that cover verbs of motion specifically, so it might be worth it to a learner to get one of those for better coverage. I also saw a review saying the book lacked coverage of declination of Russian names. This appears to be true, or at least I haven't seen coverage. But in my opinion, the coverage of just about everything in more detail than I'll ever need is the great strength of this grammar. It's very thorough, and explanations are quite clear. The binding, print, and everything about the book's physical quality in general is very good. And finally, although I haven't used it yet, there is a 270 page workbook, with answers, for this grammar, that is highly regarded. It's expensive ($50), but I plan on getting it in my next Amazon shipment. That's how much I like this book. Now for the cons. The first edition was published back 1950's. Naturally, the early editions had lots of Soviet vocabulary. Fortunately, this has all been cleaned out for the new edition. But the author did something which I understand but don't like very much. He used lots of real literature as sources for his sentences. While many of these are fine, there is a lot of low frequency vocabulary, and complicated/poetic writing styles. I know that grammars have a tendency for not going easy on the learner, but I feel this one would be better if it used it's own sentences, or more modern, straight-forward language. The other thing about it that's really annoying is the (I assume) scholarly old British english that the author used. The author of the third edition stated that he didn't want to exclude any of the goodness found in the earlier editions, so I guess that means he was afraid to update the bizarre english that comes with the book. Unfortunate, but I admit that I can pretty much always figure out what he's saying. In summary, if you are a Russian learner who wants to learn the language to a high level, and you prefer to have a grammar with english explanations, then I highly recommend this book. I'll try to review the workbook at a later date.
