"Based on solid linguistic and pedagogical grounds and covering different layers of the Persian language structure, this book is an essential reference for Persian grammar. Simple and explicit explanations, exhaustive exercises, and interesting idioms and proverbs are among many strong points of this book. Without a doubt, learners of Persian language will benefit from this book." Pouneh Shabani-Jadidi , McGill University, Canada
"As with English, there's a lot more to Persian than meets the eye, or ear. It needs an all-round practitioner to teach the subtleties of this apparently easy but eloquently idiomatic and multidimensional tongue. Saeed Yousef fits the bill: an experienced teacher, a connoisseur of his own and several other languages, and a poet. His book is an essential vade mecum for all who have decided to make Persian their own." John Perry, Professor of Persian (Emeritus), The University of Chicago
