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 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.

Webster's New World Thesaurus by Charlton Grant Laird (Warner Books 1974) (423) is an indispensable guide for anyone who has ever written anything. My rating: 7/10, finished 1976.

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.
