Everyone needs a thesaurus.
I love this thesaurus. The layout is clean, the font is easy to read, and the explanations of synonym nuances very clear. What more can one ask of a reference? This is the best thesaurus I have ever owned.
It's used in advanced ESL class and the students are very satisfied with it.
Very thorough, easy to read reference source. As a part-time writer I was frustrated with being constantly unable to find the word I sought in my original, woefully inadequate desk thesaurus. Seeking an upgrade, I ultimately made the substitution with this one, much to my delight. The text is easy on the eyes, making perusal pleasurable. All the words you'll ever need are in here and descriptive synonym studies are offered for the major words of the language, breaking down definitions and offering precise alternatives for whatever your application. I definitely recommend this vital reference source.
