An example of Duff's issues: Chapter 4 of his books introduces prepositions, 18 of them with their variant translations according to case. As a teacher and student of language for the past few years, I believe this is a major blunder. The students always struggle with the little 3 and 4 letter prepositions and adverbs. Putting them all together is a silly blunder.

No, not at all...your reaction is normal. It's a pain in the keister!
