Excellent. Used this as a course book at university, but I managed to teach myself quite a lot from it before I went. This is the book you need if you want to learn, or learn about, Old English. It gives you a good grounding in Old English grammar (starting simple) and includes some classic texts (again ordered with easier ones first, getting more difficult) and a very good OE to Modern English vocabulary.
