I think the hardcover dictionary is worth the money. My advice is to stick with.

The Deluxe has a thumb index and comes in a hard shell slipcase which protects the book. I find it hard to believe it was an accident

It is hard to rate a product I needed for school but the Black's Law Dictionary is the standard for legal definitions.

I'm currently a 1L law student and have used this pocket dictionary a ton since I first got it.

As a student I have access to the online edition through Nexis but I've actually found this to be easier since the search tool is not always as good as you would expect and just getting to the online version can take longer than opening up this book most of the time.

I also am more of a kinetic learner and have found that the print edition helps me to retain better. Plus I just love books so it's more enjoyable to me to look it up in a book than online (and in law school every small pleasure helps).

Definitely recommend it. I've found it useful and more importantly more enjoyable than an online version.

UPDATE: I'm now a 3L and it's true that you don't use this dictionary as much you would expect to, especially after 1L. But I do still pull it out every so often, and seeing definitions in print form helps me to remember them.

I will say though that part of me wishes I had gone with the full sized version instead of the pocket edition. It is frustrating in some upper level classes, like Property, when you go to look for a word and it isn't there.

If you are concerned about the weight you carry, you will find that you will get better at carrying only what you need (or just get used to tugging around a ton of books all the time). So the pocket edition is not essential.

Overall, I don't regret buying it as it's been helpful enough to warrant the 35 bucks you will spend on it. Plus Black's is the best law dictionary out there. But, if you are short on money and are trying to decide between the pocket edition and the full edition go with the full edition.
When compared to the newest, 9th edition, this 5th edition puts that one to shame! And, rightfully so! For example:

I could NOT believe the definitions in 9th edition book! They are supposed to be 'legal' definitions! Definitions of words when they are used in laws and Courts, not as defined in Websters which is everyday use.

Fence, for example in the 5th edition is:

A hedge, structure, or partition, erected for the purpose of inclosing a piece of land, or to divide a piece of land ito distinct portions, or to separate two contiguous estates. (and more)

In the 9th edition, it does NOT mention the definition shown above, but goes on ad nauseum to define how drugs and stolen goods can be sold to a fence. Not one mention of the "fence" as it pertains to real property. NOT ONE WORD!!!

However, the new Editor's name, in gilded letters, LARGE gilded letters, is on the leather bound cover: Bryan A. Garner, Editor in Chief.

Don't waste your money on the 9th or 8th edition.
I sought out this product because it is the last edition before the NWO began changing the dictionary. If you don't believe it, compare the definitions for the USA. The USA or US now ceases to exist legally. Now I must get a ninth edition for the new words that have since been created.
This particular book is nicely padded, has a gorgeous cover, and in near perfect shape except for the damage described by seller. Seller nicely wrapped the product for shipping and it arrived within the shipping parameters. I would buy from this seller again since he gave an accurate description and knows how to wrap an item for shipping.
Extremely helpful when reading through depositions and motions. Already dog-eared after a couple weeks. Should have spring for the hard cover edition.
Worth its weight in GOLD, especially if you need legal info on what legalese means. I have difference versions. This is best one with most content that I have
Would buy again
A lot of words, and light weight. Only suggestion: come with tabs to separate the letters. A lot of looking where a word is, but once I put on my own tabs, great book.
Steel balls
How does one say he "loves" a dictionary? No such book is ever a page-turner or a "read in bed" tome. On the other hand, when (not if) I have to decode legalese that's thicker than the jungles of Borneo, I'll want this along. I got it because another guy recommended I have a copy at my side. After looking at ~100 terms at near-random, I'm glad I acquired it. I expect to need it. And the $200 price for a new volume is not affordable.
I was disappointed with this purchase. The item is listed as "(CD-ROM)". In the box there was only a 12 page booklet. No CD-ROM. The booklet contains a pointer to a website where the program is downloaded using the key in the booklet.

This would not have been too bad if the program actually contained Black's Law Dictionary. It does not. The program accesses the web everytime it looks up a dictionary. Want to use the program when you do not have an internet connection? No can do. This makes the product a whole lot less useful too me. (useless?)

A second fault is there is no actual program to be run. The program operates as a toolbar in your web browser and word processor. Now everytime I browse the web I have to look at the Black's toolbar. I hate extra toolbars. I was hoping for a nice user interface along the lines of Microsoft's Encarta Dictionary. No such luck.

The only saving graces is the quality of the dictionary itself. Black's dictionary is quite good.
