The two positive features of this book are that it is cheap, and that the type is very clear. However, it doesn't seem to have much more content than the tiny Oxford Spanish Minidictionary I have, yet is too big to carry around. The quality of the binding is quite poor (as you would expect for the price). If you are serious about learning the language, I would recommend a minidictionary and a "proper" dictionary (I have the Oxford Spanish Dictionary, also bought from Amazon, around £20 but well worth it) for the home - give this one a miss. It does have a fairly good verb/grammar section, but I much prefer the separate Collins Verbs and Grammar books, which are more comprehensive and nicer to use (and also cheap).
