Fills in a large gap of knowledge previously missing.

As a person who only found out his heritage in the last 10 years, finding resources that speak to it are rare. This is a great book as it not only builds language but goes to explaining how to implement it.

Fantastic

We are so happy with the service, the customer support and overall very very satisfied with the product itself.
This book is such a valuable resource to all and will hopefully support the revitalisation of a language.
The quality and design of the book is also very well thought out and designed making it super easy to read and understand.
