What Character Is That?, 2nd edition	by Ping-gam Go & Easy-Access Dictionary of Chinese Characters			New to Bored Feet

It’s a Chinese dictionary for the Western mind. Most Chinese dictionaries sort by the complexity of the character, that is, by the number of strokes in the character. The unique feature of this dictionary is its arrangement: first by the English word of the character’s root or “radical,” and then by the number of strokes.

This simple rearrangement dramatically narrows the field of search for any given character. The dictionary teaches how to identify the radical and also provides its etymology to help you memorize it.
