"A practical bilingual dictionary with more than 100,000 entries of current vocabulary in English and Spanish including excellent examples of words used in context to illustrate idiomatic usage. In addition, it provides pronunciation in both languages, with, for Spanish, Spanish American pronunciation given first, followed by ceceo, generally associated with Spain. Users also will appreciate the numerous culture notes, grammar guides, and verb-conjugation lists. An e-ticket for a free downloadable electronic dictionary is included."

"The words 'concise' and 'comprehensive' describe the content of this compact book. Definitions are fuller and more examples are given than in Merriam-Webster's Spanish-English Dictionary (Merriam-Webster, 2005)"
