For learning English, not Russian

This is a very good book, but the online information failed to show that it is meant for Russians learning English (such as the ESL students mentioned in another review), not for English-speakers learning Russian. So, I was disappointed to get a book with no pronunciation help for the Russian words, when that is what I had expected.

Great for ESL tutoring - wish they could show a page

If only they could show a sample page - it would give all the lowdown a prospective purchaser would need. Most of the caveats I saw in the other reviews are true enough, but this is still the best basic ESL resource I've come across (both the monolingual and the English/Russian version). My only negative is that a few items are a bit dated (or maybe that's the book's British roots and it's an item common across the pond but not here). But the thematic approach works great and I'd give this a slight edge over the line of also worthy Bill Bliss illustrated dictionaries.
