Excellent book, but the price...
This is an excellent book by an author well-known in the Russian language pedagogical world. It is essentially one very large table with a frequency-ordered list of Russian words, the English equivalent, along with an illustrative sentence or sentence fragment. That said, the price for this book is grossly inflated. This is true of both the print and e-book versions.
