Although the book was described as used, it was in excellent condition. It arrived very quickly. This book is a boon for crossword fanatics---also helps in finding alternative words when writing essays, etc. It is packed with interesting facts and information (and it is verified, unlike the internet) and the illustrations are clear and well labelled. As well as the reverse dictionary, there is a lexicon of difficult words. Whether you want to find out about hairstyles,volcanos or vealcuts --it's all here. Great--how did I manage without it? A very good book to have as a family reference.

I have bought many copies of this book (previous and now current editions) - initially for myself, but then more copies for friends who have also been awestruck by it. It's an "association" thing - you need a word but you can't look it up in an ordinary dictionary because you don't know what it's called so you don't even know where to start. For example, you need the name of the ceremonial chair arrangement that people sit in when riding an elephant. So you look up "elephant" and hey presto - it's a HOWDAH. There are also wonderful charts, pictures and diagrams. It's absolutely superb and an indispensible source of information. But beware - you can get lost in it for hours...LOL!

This dictionary certainly deserves all the plaudits. I've only had it a couple of days & can't stop looking at it. So much more than just a simple dictionary - more like a reference book with great illustrations. Like some other reviewers I wonder how I did without it!

My sister had borrowed this from a friend, so I sent for one for her own personal use. She was delighted to receive it, and said it was in excellent condition, being an as-new book. May Reddy.
