5つ星のうち4.0Great for ESL learner who are native Japanese speakers
I really like this book. It may not be 100% accurate, but it allows for very efficient ESL vocabulary building. Of course it's important to try to use the all English version, but I have a student who came all the way to the US from Tokyo for just 25 days. He is doing over 60 hours of ESL in that time and needs to maximize results, so this OPD version is great!

5つ星のうち5.0wonderful!!! very useful for native English speakers too
This just arrived and I am sooo happy :) Dont pay too much attention to reviewers here who claim this isnt useful for English speakers learning JP. I'm a rank beginner. Studied for 2 months so far and know only 175 kanji and very basic sentence structures yet I find this extremely useful. The kanji's easy to read and illustrations are attractive. You could easily spend hrs poring over this without getting bored. Can see myself referring to this handy dictionary for many yrs to come. Recommended to all Nihongo students. It's worth far more than $16 IMHO. Do yourself a favor and buy NOW!!!
