As far as I know, this book is welcomed by everyone who has it. I was excited when I found it, as was the person who showed it to me. I have given several as gifts, and each recipient declared it to be "Just what I was looking for."

It's very good, but not perfect. No inter-language dictionary can contain all the words in either language, but the words it has should ideally form a closed set. (In a closed set, each word given as a translation can in turn be found in the other section. That allows the user to check nuances.) This one falls a bit short of that ideal, mostly with less common words.

Transliteration is necessarily phonetic, and pronunciation of Yiddish is not uniform around the world. There is a standard transliteration (corresponding to a synthesized standard dialect), which Harduf seems to use, but which I don't find a key to. (There is a fine key for the Yiddish alphabet.) So far at least, I've easily found whatever I looked for.

The English-to-Yiddish section is set in proportional fonts, while the Yiddish-to-English section uses smaller fixed-width fonts. The difference, while jarring at first, makes it immediately clear which section the book is open to.

I seem to be harping on shortcomings, but they are minor. The book is a valuable reference that has ended my search. I keep it either in my night stand or next to the OED.
Perfect! Need my glasses for the Yiddish to English which is in smaller print, but it will more than serve the purpose of helping me recall a language I seldom hear any more.
I really like the book. The only drawback is the smaller lettering in the 2nd half of the book; the print for the Yiddish to English words is a little small. I can see it fine, but an older person or one who has problems seeing may not be able to make out the words.
Very useful but unusual in that it avoids any word that might be construed as slang!
received the book right on time and it certainly is informational as a dictionary. I did however find it to be written on rather coarse paper, the inexpensive binding put together in very loosely and ill-fitting manner.....I am surprised that this book was so costly as it was presented this way, and I certainly hope it will hold up well in all its use.
This book never arrived! Where is it????
