Editorial Reviews

If you often wish you had the Spanish terms for "caulking gun (pistola para calafateo)" and "compact disc rewritable recorder (grabador de disco compacto regrabable)," then this is the book for you. For the rest of us, it's just fun.

— San Francisco Chronicle

Breaks new ground to stunning effect... immense scope and depth. The beauty of this book is that you don't even need to know the word you are looking for... The computer generated artwork is detailed, luminous and photographic in its fidelity -- only better, because all of its parts are distinct and identifiable, whether in the human body, the plumbing system of a house or the core of an atom.

— San Francisco Chronicle

A treasure-trove of information... vividly defines numerous terms... the illustrations in this dictionary are colorful, highly detailed, and often three-dimensional in appearance... an excellent reference source... Recommended.

— Library Media Connection

28,000 bilingual terms and 3,600 colorful pictures fascinate and educate. Superb dictionary for learning Spanish words.
