Deserves more the 5 stars, covers a wide variety of common words, gives recent examples of usage in major publications, the only thesaurus I use and trust, solves the common thesaurus problem of improper usage, if anyone rates this less than 5- it's because they aren't thinkers!

A new approach to looking up just the needed word with a zest of intellectual zing added.

This is my favorite thesaurus to use, and it has come in handy many a time.  Sometimes a simple word just does not do a situation justice! It really is not one for common use, as the words that it brings up are simply not common words, but they can be useful. 5/5 for pure originality!
