Reviews - What do customers think about Oxford Mini Dictionary & Thesaurus?
Get the previous version, which was much better! May 11, 2007
This book is a real disappointment because it loses the benefit of the previous version (ISBN 0-19-860183-2, 1997) which had the very unique and useful 'one-stop entries' system where the dictionary and the thesaurus are described in the same entry. They are separated again in this new version which is very cumbersome to use much the same as usual dictionaries. I can hardly understand why the author has changed it this way.
