This version of M-W is compact enough to fit in my backpack amongst many other chunks.
The condition of the one i got is overall very good although it is second-handed.
To those who do not like look up words online, this is highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you are trying to find the definition for a ... 27 Sept. 2015
By Archer leanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are trying to find the definition for a "new" word, coined in the last ten years, you will not find it. If you are looking up a definition for ; "texting", "bluetooth","millenial" or "affluenza", this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a reference containing spelling, pronunciation and definitions for the English language, you have found it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it. 12 May 2016
By Tristan Heberlein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Love it. I like to read before bed and just can't stand having my phone by me to look up words online. I've looked up some crazy obscure words many times, and miraculously this little book has every friekin obscure word in the english language. Makes me proud to be a nerd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Printer REQUIRED for exchange! Be sure its exactly what you're looking for or you have a printer. 5 Mar. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This dictionary is way smaller than expected. Even the words are tiny, I found it quite difficult to read. Also because of the size the book will not hold its own page open. Having the ability to set it down while refrencing a word without losing the page is a big deal. So, I thought, it's fine Ill send it back and exchange it for the right one....We'll turns out I cant. I do not own a printer to print a return lable. I was given no other option. So, now I'm stuck with a dictionary I'll never have a use for. Yet here I am looking for a functional dictionary once again and I'm out money I shouldnt be.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Works 5 Dec. 2015
By Thomas Colligan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Been using this dictionary for about a week, I have always been able to find the words I am looking for thus far. The print is somewhat small, but about what you would expect from a "pocket sized" dictionary.

Mine came with what seems to be some sort of misprint on the entry for the word 'fate', but besides that, so far so good.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Merriam-Webster Dictionary 20 Feb. 2014
By Riley1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I must have ordered the wrong size the first time. I received the smaller paperbook dictionary. The letters were so small that it was difficult looking up words and reading them. I bought a copy of this one for myself and one for my 8 year old granddaughter. This dictionary is size 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches. It is perfect for both of us.
