I also liked the way the author has dispensed with a lot of the technical linguistic information that unfortunately finds its way into many introductory Greek texts, as well as wordy explanations for why certain forms look the way they do -- another drawback of first year texts. This is the second edition, copyright The layout is quite attractive, with the usual morphological paradigms nicely laid out from chapter to chapter.
The book contains clear and easy to understand explanations of important grammatical concepts such as indirect discourse and the functions of participles. It also has good exercises, including both Greek to English and English to Greek sentences for translation, occasional exercises where individual verb forms must be parsed, and excellent longer passages of connected prose, mostly adaptations from Herodotus. It offers relatively early on a number of different genitive, dative, and accusative case usages and makes good use of a variety of common Greek idioms in the exercises.

Big drawback: The extended reading passages, excellently adapted and very important to beginning students, do not have separate vocabulary under the text. Where many of the words in the reading have nowhere else appeared in the book, students are left to look these words up -- a time consuming endeavor that could be easily eliminated with a straightforward running vocabulary.
