Aside from the Romaji, this is a good grammar overview, reference, and common-vocab reference.
What I like:
- The grammar covered is comprehensive and useful.
- Grammar/particle explanations are brief, and have plenty of examples.
- Often groups related/similar stuff together to help you contrast ambiguous stuff (eg, "〜と, 〜たら, 〜なら, 〜ば" are all right next to each other).
- 2nd part of the dict (part 1 is a grammar overview) covers the usage and nuances of lots of useful stuff, and their explanations shut up pretty quickly and let you figure stuff out by-example too.
- Categorized entries in the ToC based on whether they're particles, verb suffix, etc.
- Appendixes are comprehensive and cover stuff like: common verbs/nouns; the various counting systems (people, animals, cylindrical, etc.); transitive/intransitive verb pairs, and even weird stuff like "る verbs that are actually Ichidan verbs"(!), such as 走る.
Coming across a Japanese book that just shuts up and gives lots of examples has been a rarity for me. And I've certainly never seen one that had appendixes for such a variety of useful/weird stuff at the same time.
This is a very good book, and I'd highly recommend it.
