Caution - this is a reprint of the old 3rd edition,
This review is from: Arabic-English Dictionary: The Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic (Paperback)
I note that neither the publisher nor Amazon say this is the 3rd edition, first published in 1976 (the 2011 date on Amazon is the reprint date of this dictionary).
If you want the old 3rd edition, then go for it.
However, Arabic courses and academics will recommend the 4th Revised edition, 1994, sold by Amazon - link below
Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic: Arabic-English
If you wish to check my comments above, then the edition I am reviewing has 1130 pages. The latest 4th edition has 1301 pages. The original had 1110 pages, so the reprint I am reviewing has added 20 pages as another review has complained about. A link to the original 3rd edition on Amazon is below:

Hopefully this has given the extra information lacking in the description, to enable potential customers to make up their minds before investing their money.
