How to learn Greek?

I know that the title of this post is sort of odd, but I've been struggling to figure out how to learn Modern Greek. For all my other self-taught languages (German, Dutch, Catalan), I've been able to find decent online and printed resources, but for some reason, I can't stick to any specific one in Greek. I have the "Teach Yourself Greek" book, but frankly, it's not the best out there. I am nonetheless a fan of the other Teach Yourself series, and they're coming out with new editions before summer this year (Northern Hemisphere) and it looks like they're going to be better. 

Nonetheless, I don't want to wait three months to start learning Greek. How did you teach yourself Modern Greek? Which resources did you use? Thanks in advance!
