This book is a very useful book for everyone who's interested in American Slang. Moreover, it arranges by topic, so you can find those slangs under the topic that you want easily. By comparison, if it sorts by alphabet, and you want to find the word under the meaning that you know, you might have no idea where you should start, which part of the book or dictionary. But this dictionary provides you to make it easier, including examples how to use for every word. Easy to read and easy to use!!
