english speaker wanting to SPEAK farsi, ok, otherwise don't bother
This book, unlike its advertisement include no written farsi. you cannot use it to look up written farsi words, because it only includes transliterations. it would most probably be helpful for an English speaker to use to help them speak some farsi to an extent, but not helpful at all for much of anything else. disappointing because i thought we'd finally found a simple farsi-english, english-farsi book. bought for a farsi speaker, for whom it is useless.

Smaller than What I expected
By KAJAL GH
It is a good book if you want to improve your Farsi or you want to translate
something very quick.
But if you want a real dictionary and use it professionally this would not be your choice.
Overall the quality of the book was OK, I just made a bad choice.

Very Good Farsi Phrasebook/Dictionary
By Peter K Yorck
As an aspiring student of the Persian language, I can testify that this book more than packs a punch at its size - it has a good number of important phrases and the dictionary will more than get you by on a day to day basis.
