Has anyone else taken a look at that new primer?

The pace seems quite intense. Can you imagine starting with such a thing?

the book's pace is very agressive. It has the feel of an intensive review book more than a first year Greek book. The book was written as part of a larger series however. It would be nice to see how the other parts work with this one.

On a side note, I love in the preface where the publisher writes "Keys may be obtained by Teachers and by bona-fide private students only by application to the Publisher"
