French books  
After buying HarperCollins Robert Unabridged French Dictionary (the ultimate bilingual dictionary), I want to know what is...

1) the best French Grammar book. My teacher told me that Schaum's Outline of French grammar is good, but I want to know if there is a better option. I am not familiar with Le Bon Usage and Langenscheidt Pocket French Grammar, so I need information about those books too.

2) the most concise (but complete) conjugation book. There are so many conjugation books out there, but I don't know which one to buy. I cannot find Bescherelle here (by the way, what's the difference between their « La Conjugaison pour tous » and « L'art de conjuguer » ? are they the same book?). My next option might be the "501 French Verbs".

N.B.: bilingue, monolingue, ça m'est egal

As all the little French school children: Le Bescherel (orthographe, grammaire, conjugaison).
http://www.amazon.fr/conjugaison-pour-tous-Lorthographe-grammaire/dp/2218924404/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1210100015&sr=8-1

Really a best seller in France, since... pffff, my grand parents!
