It's the best dictionary ever.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Concise Oxford English Dictionary: Luxury Edition, 11th edition, revised 2009 (Hardcover)I've had several dictionaries and they've all been kind of iffy, to say the least!The others have had words missing here and there so frustration has been a common word. This one has them all. I'm a writer as well as a newsletter-editor so this dictionary is a must for me, as it should be for you too. I shopped around and Amazon was the best for this, making it a good deal, including free delivery. What a bargain.

I'm a great fan of the COED but to say that it's the best dictionary ever is a bit over the top - that honour surely falls to the Oxford English Dictionary itself. The Concise is the best compromise between coverage and portability, ideal for the home bookshelf or the desk drawer in the office. If you need something you can slip in a briefcase or backpack then the pocket edition is probably more suitable; if you want absolute, no expense spared, comprehensiveness then the OED is the better choice.

Agreed, but this is definitely the best everyday, desk drawer dictionary out there.
