Fantastic - Because I'm in the US I was hesitant to buy Chambers. But since the price is so low I took the plunge. Now I can't understand why I ever hesitated. This is one of the best Dictionaries of the English language available and it plugs right into WordWeb for cross referencing. I also got the Chambers Thesaurus which I'm equally happy with. Highly recommend it.
