Choice Magazine, the leading review medium of books for academic
libraries, has a rave review of the New Oxford American Dictionary by Erin
McKean (2nd ed.):  "Continuing the creative approach of the first edition,
The New Oxford American Dictionary presents, as a word's first edition,
the meaning which is its "core sense": the typical, central use of the
word in modern, standard, American English. ... NOAD is an eminently
usable dictionary with an attractive layout; clear, crisp illustrations;
usage guidance; and synonyms with connotations.  Sure to become everyone's
favorite dictionary!  Summing Up: Essential.  All libraries."

Congratulations to Erin and others who worked on this dictionary!
