But it's the only one that's affordable outside of Iceland. If you want to study Icelandic, this is your only choice, live with it, and learn this dictionary by heart(that's what I did!), you have enough words in here to become quite fluent.
More worryingly, I've already noticed a couple of pretty basic words that are simply missing, so as a list of words, it isn't exactly complete, and probably wasn't researched like a Collins. I also noticed that some words still have the letter 'z' which was of course abolished some time ago in Icelandic, so it's not even up to date.
The saving grace is that it's small, pocketable, and you don't have much choice if you want a reasonably priced English-Icelandic/Icelandic-English dictionary. Yet.
