Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is a big book tat is very nicely done. Nice big pictures. Very good quality. I believe that for people whose mother tongue is English, it is perfect. English for me is second language, so the definitions were a bit complicated and the whole book goes very much into detail, sometimes ommitting more general terms like simply "trousers", etc. and instead it just lists the many types of trousers. But I anyway learned a lot already about the different fruits and vegetables, etc. So I am still very happy that I have it and it is also great for translation purposes where I need to find technical terms that I might not even know in my native language, so I just open this book at the subject, and I will find all the words relating to it!

I recommend this book not only to non-natives and beginners, but also to anyone who is in need of knowing what the details, we usually never ask about, are called.

This book contains great art and a wide variety of sections and very small details.

HASH(0x9c4d44ec) out of 5 stars Wonderful Visual Resource 6 May 2007
By Peace-filled Merry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Our son found this dictionary and purchased it himself. As a deaf student, he has poured over the pages with delight. It is a wonderful reference for those with language problems, learning disabilities, and the curious in general. We were so impressed we donated 25 copies to our son's school for classroom use. The students and teachers have loved it!

HASH(0x9c4d45a0) out of 5 stars Visual dictionary- not so visual 14 Jun. 2007
By S. Dixit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Good lay out and high quality paper. Pictures are fine. But more like a small encyclopedia than a dictionary. Major drawback is small font letters, not easy to read.Bit disappointed, could have been better.

HASH(0x9c89e9c0) out of 5 stars a resource for many different viewers 17 Dec. 2010
By ESL teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I find that this book is a useful tool to use with my ESL students. They can learn the names of the tools they use at work, and words for the items in their daily lives in an easy to understand format. It is a marvelous teaching tool, and has saved me hours of Internet searching and printing to prepare lessons.
