The New Penguin Russian Course
by Nicholas J. Brown

A reader from Los Angeles, CA: Great book...great method... As far as learning a new language goes, I think that starting with being able to read it is equally important to being able to speak it. They go hand in hand with adult education. I was sick of discovering that most of the Russian books out there are devoted almost entirely to teaching you catch phrases to "get you going". This book starts with the alphabet. It is detailed and actually does "get you going." Russian is a tough language to learn, but this book will help you through it without condescending you. I would highly recommend it for people who are serious about learning the Russian language.

Random House Russian-English
Dictionary of Idioms
by Sophia Lubensky

A reader from Monterey, CA: This is a rare masterpiece in the Russian language! Having taught 100's of Russian students in the military, it was rare for me to recommend a general, must-have dictionary. Any student or professional in the field of Russian language must acquire this book! Dr. Lubensky's painstaking efforts at this complex and often-misunderstood area of the language are remarkable, and the depth and breadth of her research are reflected in this massive tome!

501 Russian Verbs : Fully Conjugated in All the Tenses Alphabetically Arranged
by Thomas R. Beyer

Synopsis: For the student of Russian or the traveler who needs a more comprehensive information source on verbs, here is the book to recommend. Arranged one per page in Cyrillic type, each verb includes English pronunciation and translations. Features over 1,000 verbs.
A reader from St. Louis, Missouri: This is a necessary reference book for all Russian students. This book leads you through all conjugations of the two infinitive verb forms. The only problem is, sometimes, locating the necessary verb is difficult in the index. I recommend this book for all my students. It is especially helpful with the command forms.

    Wedded Strangers: The Challenges of Russian-American Marriages
    by Lynn Visson

    A reader from Lakewood, Ohio: When I ordered this book, my US born husband said it's probably going to be useless for us as it sounds like it is targeted to the Americans who marry the "mail order brides". I was pleasantly surprised though to find out that the book was very informative and helped me sort some issues out (mainly reassuring me that having these sort of issues is not 'just us'). The author has been married to a Russian, so she has an 'insider' prospective of the matter. I thought the descriptions of the cultural differences were pretty accurate, with lots of real life examples (I can relate to many of them). And now that my husband and I have our first son (1.5 year old) I can't agree more that you face the biggest challenges when you start raising a child.

    Synopsis: The Art of Russian Cuisine is almost as immense as the vast expanses of Mother Russia. Filled with 500 recipes for classic Russian dishes, it also provides a history of Russian food and culinary life. If Russian food interests you, The Art of Russian Cuisine is worth having for its traditional recipes and the enlightening exploration of their origins.
    A reader from New York, NY: Easy, unpretentious, complete and VERY tasty. Excellent book. It is so easy to use and it is so well-organized. Without much experience in cooking, I always came out with tasty -- "real" Russian -- dishes when cooking with this book.
    A reader: The best Russian cookbook. A very comprehensive and well written Russian cookbook. I am very involved in Russian cooking and have read and tried recipes in most of the Russian cookbooks available. Every book has its strength, but this is by far the best overall.
