This review is from: Dictionary of German Slang and Colloquial Expressions (Barron's) (Paperback)
It is an interesting and useful reference, it contains many words and expressions that occur in everyday german that don't appear in a "regular" dictionary. It is great for spicing up your vocabulary if you are a student or have regular contact with native german speakers. What i find slightly annoying is that most examples are given as american english expressions (well it is written by a professor of languages in NY) that a british person would not always recongnise. What may also be regarded as a negative is that there is no index in the back, cross-referencing the english expressions to a german key words, that you do get in some colloquial dictionaries.
