This is a textbook, and while that is fine for Historical Indo-European 101, it is not what I was expecting. Now, if you are in the market for such a book (glossary terms in bold with definitions, etc.) as an intro to IE, this is a solid book. I should have known that by the title, but I found the description and reviews misleading in that regard.

If I had picked this up to use in teaching Indo-European, I might give it 4 or 5 stars! ( )
