Look at what this guy wants for this PAPERBACK book! The one above it will save you $175.00, for the same EXACT product. Wake up and smell the tacos, buddy, you'll never get $183.00 of my money, what a jerk! You can FLY and buy one in Mexico that price!
needs updating , but still the best I've found Jan 19, 1999
It's true that this dictionary could benefit very much from an updating, and I have (very rarely) found inaccuracies (such as "be wary of" for percatarse de), but overall, I find it to be the best available in mass-market paperback format. I have been using it for nineteen years, and I have also found it to be superior to many others I've consulted, such as Harrap's, Larousse, Webster's New World, University of Chicago, and Bantam. Perhaps the reason I like it is that it has served me well for Spanish literature. Not only have I found more of the words I need, but I find the definitions to be clearer and more nuanced. The main weak points I have noticed are in the area of foods (the dictionary earns about one star in this respect) and technical terms. It is also worth noting that the dictionary has a clear bias in favor of British English and Penninsular Spanish. Notwithstanding these shortcomings, I would bet that most readers will experience much less frustration using this dicitonary than with others in its class. I still swear by it.
Outdated, I don't recommend it. Dec 28, 1998
Well.... this dictionary needs an update badly. The volume of vocabulary is sufficient enough, but it needs a major overhaul in words, definitions. Cassells has a vast series of dictionaries; I don't know about other ones, but I don't recommend this Spanish dictionary. Try to choose another from the listings at this this site site.
