My American Heritage a nice looking Dictionary with color pictures, but it's also too big and heavy...and not as comprehensive as the Random House. As I said, the Random House is plenty comprehensive for me, it's relatively light weight (as compared with the Third World and the Amer Her), and the print is very easy to see (great contrast between black/bold and regular print. This one gets lots of use....and I haven't come across any words it does not have an entry for. So If anyone is thinking about which one to buy, my recommedation is the Random House...plus it did not cost me an arm and a leg.
1) No bugs or errors running the program itself.
2) Found every word I was looking for.
3) Excellent customizable dictionary.
All things taken into consideration I dont think you will find a better dictionary for the price.
Although I too was disappointed at not being able to purchase a newly edited dictionary, I must add that I liked the CD ROM a great deal even thought it contains no images. This software allows for all kinds of interesting searches based on approximate spellings, definitions, Boolean operations, wildcard designations, and searches that can even involve both a word specification and a definition specification. For example, by typing in "cat & rat" in the definition field, you can find all words with both "cat" and "rat" in their definitions: "cat and mouse," "farmer in the dell," "ratter," and "whisker." By typing "*book*" in the headword field and "v" (verb) in the definition field, you can find all verbs that contain "book" within them: "book," "double-book," "overbook," "prebook," and "rebook." The possibilities here are nearly endless.
To summarize: if you don't already own a good unabridged dictionary, this is a good one (as current dictionaries go). The software is well done, powerful, and fun. The publisher (and Amazon) get very bad marks for misleading the public regarding the copyright dates.
The price on the book was satisfactory. Condition when received was very good. Shipping time was good.
I love having the words on a page on my desk. Don't have to log on to the computer to look up a word.
I need my resource to be there, be useable and to keep me company.
One negative comment made by others is that the CD-ROM is text only. I do not find this to be a problem. On the few occasions where I would like to see a drawing, I get the book out and look it up.
I have been reading books written in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and find the dictionary valuable to give the definition of archaic words, and when the word first appeared.
I am completely satisfied.
