The most detailed and complete work concerning how to learn the Latin language ever compiled. With this, if you could actually read it all, you would most definately become fluent. Best of all the entire book is in audio courtesy of the Latinum podcast. Which helps learning by the ear. With all this book's exercises in speaking and conversation it emphasizes learning to speak the language rather than just reading it, which is a plus. In my opinion this text book should be standard or atleast a little more credited for all it's work.
