Advice on a good Polish Dictionary

I'm looking for a good Polish dictionary. I'm thinking of the /Hippocrene-Standard-Dictionary-Polish-English-English-Polish/ - dictionary of Pogonowski, but I'd like your advises. In Dutch I have one pocket dictionary, but it's a bit limited. Dziękuję bardzo in advance (what is in advance in Polish? :-))!

Strange that in the 'Look Inside' pages, one of the views is of a Hindi-English dictionary.
The most useful page it shows doesn't seem to point out how the book deals with words with irregular grammar.
It does not seem to go into usage either.
The only dictionary I can get my hands on is one produced more for Polish speakers learning English, with some notes on usage in the English - Polish section, but shedding little or no light in the Polish - English section.

It's strange indeed. I didn't notice. :-P

You mean Longman's one?

I know that one, but I also like a paper one. However, thanks!
