I have paged through or owned MANY Chinese dictionaries - this is among the most user-friendly. While it is not a comprehensive dictionary, it is extremely practical for everyday use. What I like most is the ease of reading the entries. Some Chinese dictionaries can be very cumbersome to read. Graphically, this is very easy to read (although too small for my mother!) and the examples are very distinct from the individual word meanings. Convenient and simple to use!
