Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's a nice dictionary to hold. It's flexible as if you've had it for years, but it's also solid, and crisp, and new - and it's the perfect size for taking to classes or popping in your bag. It also is nicely presented and more thorough than the other smaller dictionaries I had used previously." —Lindsay Does Language blog
