Superb for the self learner
I was sick and tired of buying Latin learning books to find they were little more than heavily academically written reference books with few exercises. Oxford Latin offers a course, based around practice, with much of the linguistic/grammatical jargon cut out, exposing you to different features of Latin in every section, and understanding the grammar through practice alone. This is what every Latin learner needs.

Simple but not trivial
It is an excellent start for young Latin students. The texts in Latin and the historical context in English are simple but acceptably detailed, and introduce the young reader to some popular topics of the ancient world. NB. This textbook is not enough for independent students who are not initiated to Latin pronunciation by an expert guide. I have listened to the CDs - which are sold separately - and they are not that bad for an English readership: highly recommended for independent beginners.
