Good compromise between size and content,

This review is from: Concise Oxford English Dictionary: 11th Edition Revised 2008 (Hardcover)There are many dictionaries in that size available in the market, but few have the same level of detail and conciseness found on this one. The two-volume version of the Oxford dictionary is a better dictionary in terms of number of entries and definitions per entry, but carrying two huge volumes is a major inconvenience.
If you are willing to carry only a compact single volume dictionary, this dictionary is certainly a good choice. This edition has been revised in 2008. The paper in thin, but seems to be capable of resisting tear and wear. The only feature missing is a thumb index.
