Purchased this book on learning Icelandic, and I am very happy with it. I've heard great thing about the book, and am looking forward to diving into learning the language. The cost was very fair (it was actually cheaper compared to major online book stores), and the shipping was very quick. Very satisfied.
The books got here in 2 days and at first glance they seem pretty thorough, I can't wait to submerge in this beautiful language.
