This is the dictionary that comes pre-loaded on the Kindle, and I've found it incredibly helpful. It's easy to cross-reference, and contains good examples and uses of all the defined words.

Without a doubt the best single volume English dictionary there is on the market. Not only has it a huge range of terminology it also shows etymological information, grammar information, and tens of thousands of entries on places, people, historical events, etc.
