    While this book is labeled as written for presenters, this book

    While this book is labeled as written for presenters, this book is a must have tool for all high school and college students. Being half an inch thick and small, it fits perfectly into any binder or backpack for ease of use for all your paper writing needs. Vocabulary is the most important item to be considered when talking, be it in everyday life, or for an important presentation or speech. Having a thorough grasp of the words we use shows higher intellect and can assist in conveying a deeper understanding of what is being said.
    “Antitheses: “It’s the first case in which the redistricting was for a political gerrymander.”
    This book speaks more toward those who use speech and presentation in their lives, however, the same can be said for written presentation. All of the vocabulary within this book is just as frequently used in the written sense as in the verbal and can take a mediocre thesis and make it jaw dropping. This is especially important for high school and college students where writing plays a major role in their grades and how they are viewed by both their peers and their instructors. Living in such a fiercely competitive world, this book is a vital resource for all to use religiously. It will set you apart and make you a stronger person.
