    Using Russian : A Guide to Contemporary Usage

    Does anyone have this book?

    I just bought it off of eBay for 25 bucks (retails for 34.09), and from what I've read, it's apparently a really good book.

    437 pages, perfect rating on

    Here is a little summary of the book:

    This is a guide to Russian usage for those who have already acquired the basics of the language and wish to extend their knowledge. Unlike conventional grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of vocabulary and grammar which cause most difficulty to English speakers, and focuses on questions of style and register which are all too often ignored. Clear, readable, and easy to consult, it will prove invaluable to those seeking to improve their fluency and confidence in Russian.

    I have it, but haven't gotten to it yet... I think I bought around 30 Russian guides/textbooks....
