Azeri Grammar - Is There One?

Finally, a place to learn Azeri on the Web []. We were so pleased to discover your Web site. My wife is from Baku but doesn't speak Azeri, although her mother speaks fluently. When we visited relatives there last year, we searched for a textbook to learn Azeri, but couldn't find one. We found a phrasebook, which was helpful, but there were no explanations of grammar. I even searched Dom Knigi in Moscow, but to no avail.

Is there any sort of textbook available for learning Azeri? I've spent the last two years looking for any type of instructional book, Russian or English. Do you know of any textbook that is available, and if so, where I could purchase it? Thanks again for the very informative and very helpful Web site.
