There is no IPA to show pronunciation which I suppose is understandable if they couldn't fit it in but at least they could have highlighted unusual positions of stress for example, fragola has a stressed A so perhaps they could have made that bold / underline etc.
I still have to look up each word in a "normal" dictionary and pencil in any unusual pronunciations or stress positions. Faults aside, I do like the book but I just use it to give me ideas when making flash cards for the languages I learn. I understand that there is limited space as they probably couldn’t fit in unusual plural nouns or adjectives or alternate words such as prugna/susina
For improving your vocab by subject area it's great, but for looking up words quickly, it's a bit awkward. It has a comprehensive index at the back, but if it's a dictionary you need this might not be your best place to start.
It is inexpensive and would recommend it together with the Usborne first thousand words as an excellent starting pointfor learning a new language.
Because I am a harsh marker, I gave it four stars, whereas I suspect others might give it a five.

Well up to the high standards generally found in DK's publications.
