Grammar books to use with Turkish course

I am loving the course and in particular the welcome addition of the grammar sections at the start of each skill - essential in Turkish.

This has prompted me to dig out the books I used last time I studied a bit of Turkish more than twenty years ago: Teach Yourself Turkish, Hugo Turkish in Three Months and Elementary Turkish by Norman Itkowitz (Dover). All supplement the course nicely but I wondered if there is anything more modern?

I decided to get "The Turkish Language Explained for English Speakers: A Treatise on the Turkish Language and its Grammar" by John Guise. But that likely will not be before July so ask me in August if you want my opinions on it.


John Guise himself recommended this book: The Delights of Learning Turkish: A self-study course book for learners of Turkish. 2014, by Yasar Esendal Kuzucu.

I was surprised to see his comment on it on Amazon. It has 10 5-star reviews. It's now on my wishlist!
