The very best Chinese dictionary for English speakers.

This review is from: Oxford Compact Chinese Dictionary (Paperback)
After struggling with the miniscule type in the first edition, it's a joy to use the second edition with its extensive revisions and much larger type.
This is the only dictionary that allows you to look up Chinese words by their pinyin spelling and to look up English words and find their pinyin and Chinese character equivalent. If you are studying Chinese this book is an absolute must. If you are traveling and want a pocket-sized dictionary, get the first edition otherwise you'll be a lot happier with the second edition.
