    A must for college students and writers everywhere

    Who'd have thought that Rodale, the natural foods guru, would publish the most user-friendly thesaurus ever? Amazing but true. This was recommended to me by a writer's group, and became a prime resource during my 16 years of writing and editing an alumni magazine. Rodale is much easier to use than a Roget-style thesaurus. It is my gift of choice to college-bound teens.

    Awesome Writing Tool

    I bought the Synonym Finder for an English teacher friend, because I cannot live without it. I am a teacher and a writer.

    There is no other

    There is The Synonym Finder, and then there is everything else. It's the best thesaurus out there, period.

    Wife wants to steal it!

    My wife and I have separate home offices. I have the synonym finder next to my workstation and use it often. Frankly, it helps me find the exact word that conveys the meaning I really want. Now that my wife is doing projects that also require her to choose words carefully, I often find that I must go to her office to retrieve the book. She has tried the logic that since she 'needs' it more than I do, why not just leave it in her office? I think you already know what she's getting for Christmas.

    Best Thesaurus Ever

    This book is the most wonderful writing tool I have ever used. I would recommend it to anyone that does a lot of writing. It can really add a lot to your writing to have the perfect word instead of a word that just fits.

    my #1 ressource to avoid boring writing

    being a "carbon based life form", i like touching a book and being able to flip back and forth so this reference is awesome. It offers so much more than a thesaurus it has been on my bookshelf for 15 years. Wish they would do a new edition with a few more words that have come into regular use but regardless, most of the content is timeless. I give copies of the book to new leaders to help them improve their writing and it works.

    Crossword Puzzlers Best Friend

    I bought this book to replace one that I have had for 30 years. It was falling apart and ragged and had been used for Crossword Puzzles. Though I do not need it as much as I once did, I HAD to have a new one. I also use it when writing business letters. Great Book!

    Very useful dictionary

    This dictionary is a very good tool for me as an English translator. I turn to it each time I want to be accurate and to convey the shade of meaning I want to. This is the only dictionary, I have a lot of dictionaries, that assists me in every difficult situation in my daily work. It is like a deep well whose clear water never ends.
