I have admired Arabic calligraphy for years. I was told of this book as a starter toward appreciating and writing Arabic. The directions are concise, the lessons presented with pages that are lined in a way to teach proper spacing and height of the character.
The student can progress rapidly or at a leisurely pace, depending on interest level and time available. Excellent in short sessions as it is easy to pick up where the book was interrupted. A useful skill is learned as appreciation for this calligraphy is reinforced.
The humor in the opening pages of the book is a pleasant surprise not expected in a book with a dry subject matter.
The author is Muhammad Taha Abdullah, a student of Dr. V. Abdur Rahim (it is not authored by Dr. Abdur Rahim himself). The design of the book is beautiful and the knowledge contained is important for everyone seeking to learn Arabic writing skills. I liked the corrections to common writing errors which the author presents in a clear way and suggests he has good knowledge of the subject at hand.

The "Book description" page (see below) has the website addresses of both author (Br. Taha), and reviser (Shaykh Dr. Abdur Rahim). The Shaykh's website has free Arabic language books and courses, and free lessons (Arabic-English)- all for non-native speakers of Arabic; and the author's website has articles on Arabic, teaching advice and discounts on Arabic materials. Hasten to visit and benefit.
I have found this calligraphy book to be indeed user friendly, complete with a concise introduction, as well as a step-by-step guide for the more difficult letters, at the end. I am sure that by the end of the book you should be able to write basic no-nonsense calligraphy.
