I went from a full size NIV study bible to this bible and I love it. It is almost small enough to fit in your pocket but not so small you are discouraged to pick it up and study. I keep it in my laptop bag that I take almost anywhere. I will say the print is a little small so if you have bad eyes it might be hard on them but you can't beat it for the price. It is great to pull out of your bag on the fly and read the Word of God and share with others.
I keep this Bible in my purse so I always have one with me to read and for reference, but would not recommend it for a primary or study Bible simply because the size 6 font is very small. The cover color and style is perfect for men or women. I am very happy with my purchase as it fulfills my need very nicely.
