Actually when I was ordering the book Croatian Berlitz Pocket Dictionary: Croatian-English : English-Croatian I couldn't image the real size of the book. And I was pleasantly surprised that the size of it was even less than my palm. It's very convenient for having it always with me - real pocket-book. In spite of its small size the text is easily readable and distinguishing key words with use of different color is really helpful and certainly has its advantages. The book is a great deal for those who start learning the language since it contains enough words for beginners. That was actually the purpose why I ordered this book.
