In a single volume you get synonyms, antonyms, a collection of quotations, and a word-find reverse dictionary for those occasions when you know what something is but can't remember what it's called. Sample sentences, slang terms, pronunciation guides, and dictionary definitions make this one of the most versatile writing reference books on any shelf. When you're writing short and tight, finding just the right word can be all-important.
School Library Journal
YA-This comprehensive, detailed, and thorough new resource will be a boon to students. The book has been carefully researched and is alphabetically arranged; many entries are lengthy and precise. Antonyms are supplied, as is additional information when relevant. Quotations are included to better illustrate word meanings, such as the definition of star by Longfellow as ``the forget-me-nots of the angels.'' A great desk reference that will provide variety, precision, and clarity for all writers.-Marguerite O'Connor, Lee High School, Springfield, VA

Packed with material but certainly not unwieldy, this attractively-presented thesaurus is definitely the best available. It doesn't simply give you lists of synonyms, it provides pronounciations where they're needed and even sample sentences. Most interesting is the Word Find option, which for selected entries gives extensive lists of related words beyond the synonyms. This is a top-of-the-line reference work, ideal not just for students and writers, but for everyone.

An amazing well-made resource!! The title is so modest compared to the capabilities of this book. It provides, in an easy to use dictionary format, both thesaurus, dictonary, usage, antonym, and synonyms for each word. Also, letter search option makes it easy t look up words by first letter, just like a dictionary. Easy to use, many excellent features, just wish there was a six star rating!!!

This is not useful on a nook as a book. You cant search for the word you want. I tried it, it dosent work. I called b&n and they refunded my money. There is an app that you can get that is searchable. Dont make the same mistake I did, buy the app.
