Review: The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary

The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary
Edited by Jack Halpern
1999, Kodansha International
ISBN 978-4-7700-2855-6
$39.99 US, but can be found as cheap as $24 and change

I have nothing bad to say about this book, save it was expensive when I bought it, but it is worth every penny. This dictionary is easy to use, fairly portable and contains 2200+ kanji. The SKIP system employed by the dictionary could not make it easier to find a character, and each entry has several examples per reading of a given kanji. Just browsing the book makes for an interesting read.
