It's a dictionary, so there's not much that can be said about it as a review.
The layout is acceptable and considering I'm most likely using it to verify my own knowledge, I can't really call it out on any errors. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824813928, Paperback)

The Hawaiian Dictionary, by Mary Kawena Pukui and Samuel Elbert, has for many years been the standard work of reference for the Hawaiian language. Based on frequency of usage and cultural importance, 10,800 entries, from the 41,500 in the revised and enlarged edition of 1986, have been selected for inclusion in the New Pocket Hawaiian Dictionary.

In a compact and portable format, this dictionary up-dates scientific and common names of plants and animals; Hawaiian equivalents of given names; words borrowed from other languages; numbering and counting; practical phrases, and much more. The chapter on grammar, explained in nontechnical terms, includes a pronunciation guide.

This convenient book will be appreciated by residents, visitors, and beginning students of Hawaiian alike.
