"A work which lives up to its title. It is not only remarkably comprehensive, but also highly readable and easily navigable, thanks not least to its excellent index." (French Language Studies, March 2009)

"Accessibly organized and filled with contextual examples, it is both an exceptional quick reference for the seasoned Francophone and outstanding primer for the novice speaker." (Library Journal)

Praise for earlier editions:

"This beautifully written scholarly text abounds with idiosyncratic asides and lessons within lessons." (French Review)

“As a pedagogic grammar, it is remarkably reliable and complete, with two key elements: a good index and excellent cross-referencing. He pitches the explanations at a level which is useful from first to final year undergraduate linguists.” (Journal of French Language Studies)

“Remarkably comprehensive … an essential grammar but good for a browse too. Conventional grammar and very much more is covered in meticulous detail.” (Times Education Supplement)

“Glanville Price has admirably carried out the task he set himself. The most striking revision is the reorganization of material which brings together information previously scattered in two, three or even more places. This is a vast improvement.” (French Studies)
