About the book:

Most dictionaries seem lopsided--words, words, words! What about the right side of your brain? If you've ever been frustrated with a written definition that didn't quite evoke the sweaty, dirty reality of its subject, the DK Illustrated Oxford Dictionary should have a place on your reference shelf. Created by the image wizards at Dorling Kindersley and the emperors of etymology at Oxford University Press, this 1,000-page tome contains 180,000 clear, up-to-date entries and over 5,000 sharp color pictures that are perfect matches for the words they seek to explain.

Also valuable are the simple, informative reference pages; physical and political maps, calendars and units of measure, and rules of style all shine from the page with the intensity of a laser (see diagram, p. 457). Whether you want a more intimate knowledge of gearbox than "the casing that encloses a set of gears" or a visual awareness of the tiniest parts of an insect's body--or even just a high-quality book of words--the DK Illustrated Oxford Dictionary is the clear choice. --Rob Lightner
