This dictionary is exactly what I needed... more complete than many of the 20,000 - word "large print" being offered today, yet very affordable. It is hard-backed; a real "use it for years" reference book. It is printed on a much better grade of paper than the bargain models (the ones that feel a bit like fine sandpaper to the touch). You can lay this book down open to any page and it stays open! This volume is a bit too much of a load to carry around with you. But if you are looking for a good desk-reference dictionary, or one for home use to check spelling or proper useage, and you require larger print; I believe this will suit your purposes.

It's also a great mental exercise once in awhile to use a dictionary rather than just a spell-check.

unlike the webster's other large print dictionary with 3000 entries, this 6000 word dictionary is great with multip[le definitions.

Format: Hardcover
This book is big and heavy. The description does not describe that. It describes the large print but not the extremely large size of the book. It is hard to pick up. Impossible for a young child or older person to handle. More importantly, a number of words are missing. I would not recommend it at all.

I purchased this dictionary for my husband he really likes how well and clear the definitions are written. We love it and it is easy to read with our aging eyes, it is a little heavy but placed on your desk or table for easy access should not pose a problem. Definitely not for caring around in a back pack but a beautiful addition to our home and yours as well.

My teens have low vision and have been doing their homework with the help of lighted magnifiers. This dictionary has cut the time to search for vocabulary words by at least 2/3. I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier. It's a great reference also as all of the words they look up have been listed. I would definitely purchase this again.

This is a fabulous dictionary for school, office, or home use. The large print is helpful for finding words and definitions. The size is large but not heavy in weight. There are most words commonly used found in conversation and literature. A great buy!

This wasn't a cheap investment, but have used it almost every day. Its big, but once you find it a 'home', you will use it. The large print makes it a pleasure to use. I date everything, so when I look up a word, I jot the date next to it. I use colored ink, so when I'm flipping through the book it refreshes my memory of any word I've looked up previously.

I did not do my homework on this purchase. This dictionary contains 60,000 entries, which sounds like a lot, but any serious reader will require at least twice that. However, for general use by light readers with poor eyesight it is a good purchase.
The large font is a pleasure and the book is well made. It does not have alphabetic page tabs.
