Latina Pro Populo, also titled Latin For People, is a good introduction to the Latin language.
It covers basic Latin grammar and vocabulary. While Latin is known (deservedly so) as a complex language, this book does a good job of providing the basics, allowing the reader to actually read and comprehend simple Latin sentences in just a short amount of time.
Anyone who is simply curious about Latin, without the desire to spend years of study just to read a sentence or two, would find this book to be a great starting place.
