This is not really a book that you will want to read from cover to cover, but instead keep it by your bedside and pick up between whatever you happen to be reading at the time. Browse a few of the 1500 + words, abbreviations, and technical terms and you may discover something you never knew before. I'm particularly fond of querulous. Words are a powerful tool.

This "book" acts more of a textbook than a novel but I would recommend it to anyone inspired to maximize their lexicon. The key to this book is to take your time and put in the work. If you superciliously read this book you will learn nothing. Albeit, this book did take a while to complete, it was quite the useful resource.

I always debate about whether or by these books gel or hurt students?

I am not really "reading" this book. When I have time riffle through it. It is fun to me to learn new words.
