A favorite book to carry. A flip of page and off my mind goes, coursed by a word I find there. Or did the word and all it's sister meanings find me and call me to a mindful Neverland?

I know--who uses a thesaurus now when you can google definitions, antonyms and synonyms. Roget's at one time was the thesaurus of choice, and a paperback edition was cheap and handy. But I have to echo one reviewer who complained that with alternatives a click away, it's just annoying to deal with such eye-sight challenging font. I wouldn't rule out getting a larger type hardcover edition, but the utility of this paperback is very limited and it hasn't been used for years.

I use this book everyday in my writing. Now that I'm writing so much I should really get a new one, one that is actually useful.

You don't need to be a grad student to be a pretentious bastard (see also: turgid fourflusher).

Absolutely essential... though some of their choices frustrate me.
