    This is NOT a Thesaurus. It is a technical textbook on the general principles of writing thesaurus software (computer programs).
    The intended purposes of the book are clear in the title itself, and it seems unfair to judge its usability for a purpose for which it was
    not intended.
    (Perhaps Barnes and Noble can be a little more helpful and make the nature of the book a little clearer for potential buyers with a
    limited level of reading comprehension! :)
