Ĝi estas bona libro por komencantoj! Mi tre ŝatis trastudi ĝin. Mi ankaŭ ofte uzas ĉi tiu malnova sed utila libron.

One problem: each chapter ends with sentences to be translated from English to Esperanto but the book does not contain the correct translations by which your efforts can be checked. This makes it difficult to know if you've made a correct translation. Also, the 1910 publishing date means that it somewhat lacks connection to the modern world. (i.e., no mention of radio, airplanes or television, to say nothing of cell phones, computers, etc.) Still, for addressing all grammatical aspects in a systematic way, it can't be beat. Maybe it's actually helpful to go back to a simpler time when learning.
