Easy to find words. Easy to read. The first non-multi-lingual dictionary I've bought in a long time. I considered a collegiate dictionary and thesaurus but this suits my needs just fine.
It's easy to use but not all words are there. If you read books with intense vocabulary (i.e. English literature) or period books, there are some words you might not find. but overall, it's a convenient book to keep handy for every day use
