I found Wheelock’s Latin to be amazingly straightforward and comprehensive.
The many German books which I have found are in no way comparable. They are absolutely annoying with their pictures, phrases, and dimwitted conversations, but no actual rigor. I need rigor. I thrive on rigor. I feel that every problem I have ever had in my 4 months of German has been caused by a lack of rigor in the sources I have used.
Does anybody know of a German book that is generally along the lines of Wheelock’s Latin: grammatical explanation, vocabulary, sentences, paragraphs then repeat?
It seems to me to be the most obvious method of organizing a language-learning book, but it is also the way no author I've encountered has set up their books.
