I saw this review and read it with considerable interest; I'd like to examine the book; it looks like it might be just the right instrument for a certain kind of learners (and I get the impression that this is meant for grad students). On the other hand, it should be understood that this is still fundamentally a "grammar/translation" ancient-dead-language pedagogy, even if it is built upon a massive immersion in grammar: fifty-seven pages to get through the first sentence of Caesar's De Bello Gallico!
As I am skeptical of the proposition that anyone can learn Greek or Latin simply by learning its grammar by working through a relatively small textual corpus (selected chapters from Caesar's DBG), this seems to me, like a certain Bible software company's offering of a saturation method of learning Greek through software, to promise more than it can deliver, except, perhaps, for rare individuals.
