Review by Garrick Blalock

As the title implies, the main feature of this book is compound lookup by any Kanji. This is great if the second or third character in a compound is easier to find than the first character. The book is bright yellow with three blue stripes and cost me $39.95 at Kinokuniya New York. Spahn and Hadamitzky have also published several titles with Charles E. Tuttle . I think this is a great book and finally replaced my Nelson for most uses (Nelson is still more extensive)
