About the book:

Ping-gam Go creates a dictionary ideal for the western student. This dictionary has been referred to as the Chinese Rosetta Stone . A must for every Chinese language student, it is the only dictionary where characters are looked up using the English word of the root (named the radical ), of a character instead of the number of strokes or the pronunciation of the character. Learning a mere 43 of the most common radicals will unlock 4,000 of the 5,000 characters in this dictionary. This dictionary teaches how to identify the radical and also provides the etymology to help with memorization. Practice exercises teach how to locate and identify the most common radicals appearing in characters found on a walk through Chinatown or on a Chinese menu.
