    Recommended for fun reading.

    I bought this book a few months ago and have not regretted it. It tells you when to use one word as opposed to another, or when to avoid certain words, common mistakes people make with particular words, as well as what to avoid when using words. I have enjoyed reading as well as seeing what words I already knew and looking up words. If you are seriously considering it, buy it.

    I highly reccomend this book!

    I study words alot since I read alot of great literature and if you don't know the vocabulary of the period-persay Shakespeare-you will spend more time looking up words than you will reading.I have checked this book out at my library time and time again and this is a book that I will end up purchasing.
