I grew up using an earlier edition of this dictionary (the same volume my mother took to college with her, in fact), so when I needed a handy compact word-book for quick reference at my desk, this was an easy choice. Scattered throughout are various tables and illustrations that are very helpful, and I really like the inclusion of historical personages; nothing to help you write a report, but if I need a quick pair of life dates, this is a great first place to look. And the words are clearly syllabicated, which is what drove me to need a desk dictionary in the first place. A high-quality reference, and one no desk in America should be without.Erik
I love this little bible of language.Shota
Pretty Good. More info than other onesBella
What can I say? It has a lot of words and greatly expanded my vocabulary... It's a dictionary and there's not much more to it. Would fully recommend reading it.Less_cunning
bought this at the Library booksale for one dollar this winter. my Merriam Webster 10th Edition is more or less falling apart & is dire need of rubber cement and packaging tape. although the American Hertiage Dictionary will never replace the enduringly love i have for the Merriam Webster 10th Edition nor supplant my piquant lust to one day own an OED, it has already become my go-to dictionary for quickly looking up words i do not know or cannot spell. Gooegle & Wikipedia will always fall short. If you find this dictionary somewhere cheap do not pass up on it.
