“I am absolutely thrilled to have a copy of the Collins English Dictionary. If I am ever cast off on a desert island, this is the book I want to have with me.”
“I find Collins English Dictionary invaluable because it is an encyclopaedia as well as a dictionary, and it stands up to really intensive use.”
John Grant, Crossword Editor, The Times
