From the Introduction:
The purpose of the book is to identify the most common errors for English-speaking students of Italian, to provide a basis for understanding why they typically arise, and to offer guidance for avoiding them in the future.
The author also pointed out that this is not a complete book of Italian grammar, but is designed to help readers (students of Italian) avoid the blunders and improve proficiency. Although it states that readers will get a synthetic overview of Italian grammar and its intricacies, I would say you'd probably appreciate this book more if you already have a working knowledge of Italian grammar and so be able to enrich your knowledge of the same.
Since this is a used book ordered from one of my favorite online booksellers, it's a copy from the Calgary Public Library (March 2007) and/or Crowfoot Library (a CPL branch). Here's another awesome addition to my personal library of foreign languages (and reading while taking the public bus to work)!
How I came to know about this book: Some weeks ago, I bought a brand new copy for French at Kinokuniya Kuala Lumpur. I decided to source for the Italian edition for my personal library (and revision) and it seemed to be out of print, so I scouted around and bought used instead. I love it when I receive a book that was once a library book!
