"Prepared by the acclaimed legal lexicographer Bryan A. Garner, the ninth edition of Black's Law Dictionary is a major advancement for the world's most-cited lawbook. The update was reviewed by a panel of 225 legal practitioners from across the country, as well as 65 renowned law professors. This edition features 20% more content than the abridged eighth edition, with emphasis on emerging fields of law, incorporating new legal terms from ableism, bear hug, and click fraud to X-patent, yank-cheating, and zygote intrafallopian transfer. Parts of speech, etymology, and pronunciation are provided where appropriate, plus dozens of subject and usage labels.

Good value for the money. My only complaint is that it was mailed in a padded envelope which twisted the spine a little. Still a good deal for this softcover edition of Blacks Law Dictionary. Read full review
