Webster's New World Thesaurus by Charlton Grant Laird (Warner Books 1974) (nonfiction) is an indispensable guide for anyone who has ever written anything. My rating: 8/10, finished 1976.
I have it... it works.. what else can be said about a thesaurus. I'm always amazed at how many different ways one thought might be expressed and use this extensively when I'm writing. I don't have to say "this is a very good thesaurus", I can say it's a astonishly good, or immensely good, or just so. What better way to have fun with words!
Not really a worthwhile thesaurus. I'm generally disappointed by Webster's reference books, but I went ahead and bought this since it was at a discounted price. In the end, though, I still had to buy a better thesaurus. This one only offers up the usual fare of word choices, things I could have thought up perfectly well on my own.
It's a thesaurus, so there's not much that can be said about it as a review. [return]The layout is acceptable and considering I'm most likely using it to verify my own knowledge, I can't really call it out on any errors.
The first time I found out what a thesaurus is was when my father gave me this volume. I used it for giving unique headings to my history notes in 7th grade.
