My daughter just graduated college and is going into law school so I figure it would be a great idea for a keepsake of sorts. The dictionary is awesome looking; leather bound with thumb markers, very nice. If you want to study and lug a book around for all practical purposes, get the regular edition or paperback. If you want something significant for a present, library, or personal collection then this is the one.
