The audio program costs over $200.00. And it's worth every penny! Of course, we don't always have 200.00, but we do have the money to buy the book. I strongly encourage everyone to buy it.

This book comprises the whole English language. It has a plethora of useful words and scores of related words. Furthermore, it contains guidance for usage and abusage. It is a both matchless and inimitable book.

Although I found the first part of the book a bit tedious to read a I aready knew most if the words, the second part of the book proved more engaging. B&N gets an F for both the digital version and customer service. The company still has not responded to my email about my digital purchase which kept crashing on my nook. I managed to recover the book by archiving it then taking it out of the archive, but not wihout losing the table of contents along with all my bookmarks and notes. Now I'm reading it on my BlackBerry. So much for having a dedicated ereader.

This book is a must for those who are serious about increasing their vocabulary. It's not a one time read! The formula for success in following this program is simple: Repetition & Review.
