From Library Journal:

Two primary strengths highlight this new edition: superior graphic design with entry words in large boldface and the inclusion of over 50,000 new words. A major effort has been made to address current usage with the inclusion of recent scientific, social, and political definitions, e.g., mouse as a computer device and contra as a counterrevolutionary. The over 315,000 entries include names, book titles, and places; 12 supplements include four 30,000-word bilingual dictionaries and an atlas. This is not a replacement for Webster's Third New International Dictionary , which is much less encyclopedic and contains over 450,000 entries. Nor should it be the only unabridged dictionary available. But it is a fine addition to reference collections. Stephen H. Cape, Indiana Univ. Lib., Bloomington
