Assuming you have no difficulty reading small text and are seeking a very compact HCSB, this would be a good choice. The synthetic cover is lovely- very soft like competitors' Duo-Tone and good color. Font is nice and pages are set traditionally, with headings at top of page (unlike some of Holman's other offerings).
Although described as 8-point text, I am unable to read it for more than a few minutes. It somehow appears much smaller here compared with other Bibles I own with 8-point text. Maybe it's the space between letters, I don't know. But be aware.
Overall this Bible is perfect for my needs. I carry it in my purse so I will have it with me when I need it. The construction is very good. I like the snap flap feature; it keeps the pages from getting damaged. One thing that did not meet my expectations was the "Large Print." It wasn't as large as I thought it would be but it was larger than the compact Bible I was replacing it with.
