I bought and returned this book!
This book is not meant for anybody to learn Sanskrit. It covers too many topics in too few pages. To make matters worse, quality of paper used in this book is really bad. Also, binding of the book is that of a cheap thriller and it is really hard to keep it open while reading.

One good thing about... Read more

Were the shortage of information the only problem, I might still recommend the book with only a few reservations; however, the... Read more
