    Ineffable

    Being a writer, I have collected numerous thesauruses over the last forty years and a couple dozen or more etymology books, some antique. Many of the offerings in this book are old hat to me; but I am awed with the quantity of terms I've never heard, much less used. This volume is a must for anyone in the intelligencia who knows that the pronoun "I" should never be used in a prepositoinal phrase. Nook is new to me. When I learn how to get past the borrow feature, I will purchase it.
