"A Comprehensive Spanish Grammar is an excellent
reference book which I can wholeheartedly recommend for use by
English-speaking users of Spanish, including those teaching it as a
foreign language. This book is well worth acquiring for a variety
of categories of English-speaking people who are mastering or have
mastered the basics of Spanish."
