"As the most complete, accurate, and authoritative English-language reference grammar of Russian ever published, this work supersedes two others widely used by teachers and students of Russian; every academic library ought to obtain this book." "Choice"
"Excellent. The book succeeds admirably and is almost always illustrated, sometimes generously, by examples from contemporary journalistic and literary sources. This book is excellent and satisfies a long-felt need. At the price, the paperback is a bargain and it should be invested in now by anybody contemplating years in the study or teaching of Russian. It deserves a long and successful life." "Modern Languages Review"
"The coverage and fresh interesting examples make Wade's grammar attractive. It provides information not available in other English-language descriptions and some of the explanations are insightful and helpful. It will certainly be a standard reference work over the next fifty years." "The Slavonic Review"
"Essential for any Russianist's reference shelves and an important tool for any English-speaking reader of Russian. Students ... should be encouraged to buy themselves a copy." "Journal of the Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association"
"The comprehensiveness of this new reference grammar, which is referred to in its title, is complemented by a no less important feature, its practicality. On both scores, and in their combination, Prof. Wade's work is a remarkable achievement that will indeed fulfil the stated intentions to be a guide for students of the Russian language, and an aid for teachers and others who use the language professionally. It will be essential for the former, and often referred to by the latter.
It is accompanied by a keen sense of the actual student learning Russian, with notes and markers concerning relative usefulness and common problems. The dual perspective is one of the "Grammar's" great strengths. The practicality of Prof. Wade's "Grammar" rVom Verlag:
