Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong forum.

I have been reading this excellent book and found it the most accessible book on the language I have ever come across - highly recommended!

Does the author by any chance read/contribute to this forum?

There's a version of it online Nov 29, 2009

I googled the title and found this link:
which includes a shortened (but still 300 pages) version of this book.

Shortened? Nov 29, 2009

Jack, you say the 300-pages version is a shortened one. However, I can only find a 256-page version at amazon and the like. The book indeed sounds interesting, can anyone confirm that there are two version? I'd of course prefer the complete one...

Best regards,

Look on Ebay Nov 29, 2009

The version on Google is not shortened, it's simply an extract.

Copies are hard to get hold of these days, but there are a few on Ebay.

The author is a professional translator living in the Netherlands (Well, he was in 1991!) which is why I wondered if he contributed here.....
