This book, Webster's New World Thesaurus by Charlton Laird is just what I needed to find new words to use other than the similar ones I use over and over! After awhile, it gets pretty boring having only the same words to express how I feel, when I could dig deeper and try to use a different and more interesting word in replace of it. I know many know that a dictionary defines the words you use daily, but the thesaurus actually helps you see what other words, with similar meaning could replace it ...more
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.
