    Become a Philogist

    Yes, you will be a lover of words after reading this book. This book is excellent! If you're able to study this book assiduously (it's NOT for you if you're trying to cram for a standarized test), your repertoire of words will increase tremendously; they will be hermetically sealed in your brain. Are there any words above that you don't understand? READ THE BOOK AND YOU WILL!

    Wonderful

    The book is marvellous. But I hope you are not in a mad rush to learn words by heart for some exam you are taking. It is not some kind of wordlist. Put in a little time though, and you will find it to be better than any wordlist out there. A great book, just like ALL ABOUT WORDS by the same authors (which is more exam oriented).
