"A workout with words is nowhere near as taxing as twenty minutes on a Stairmaster," says language expert Elster (What in the Word?). In this engaging narrative, the author serves as an encouraging "fitness" trainer, putting readers through their paces as they learn ten increasingly challenging levels of 50 words each, with each level divided into five sets of ten words. Each term is explored in a contextual essay of several paragraphs, and a review test concludes each set. Other grammar/style tips are sprinkled throughout the text. VERDICT Fun mental flexing for those seeking alternatives to Sudoku and crossword puzzles.
