The fruit of 15 years of research, this remarkable book contains all of the words needed for daily and even sophisticated conversation, as great care has gone into the selection of the entry words and their meanings. It contains not only high-frequency English words with full Japanese equivalents, but also a number of technical terms, new words, and vocabulary related to Japanese culture. It also presents a large number of interjections, idioms, and phrasal verbs: the common expressions that lie at the very heart of the English language. Crucially, the "Communicative" strives to present only natural Japanese equivalents, ranging from colloquial to formal, masculine to feminine, and humble to polite. Most of the equivalents are readily usable in everyday speech. Furigana superscript is used to indicate kanji pronunciation. As furigana uses hiragana, the basic Japanese syllabary, this aligns the book with current teaching methodology and enables students to use this book even if they do not know a single kanji character. Also included are special entries on Japanese usage, and grammar appendices / key verb declensions.By far this is the most comprehensive and practical dictionary of its kind, with over 22,000 entries and 19,000 sample sentences and phrases.

So, I think it would be more of a compliment to an existing Japanese reference library than a stand alone guide to learning the language as most dictionaries should be.The best books I came across to increase my ability were "A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar" and "A Dictionary of Intermmidiate Japanese Grammar". There's also an advanced level but I'm not there yet. The differences in grammar between English and Japanese are enormous so I found these books to be amazingly helpful in getting me up to speed.
Bottomline: This dictionary is meant to help you improve your speaking by way of sentence examples.If you read it , study it, it will help you be able to communicate better. It's not meant to be search for meanings of words like an actual dictionary for translation but more of focusing on communicating.
