I have an earlier edition of this book and I've used it so much that the cover is bent and the pages yellowed. I find this a very good reference work when I need to know what an idiom means. One of the best features of the book is that after each definition of an idiom, the idiom is used in a sentence. This really helps one understand the meaning of the phrase. While I like this book, I don't feel it's as good as the idiom dictionary published by Houghton: that one lists a date of origin for each idiom.
