You take a quick shower, not a fast one. But you catch a fast train, not a quick one. The rules of English usage can be confusing, and the way certain words combine - or collocate - only adds to the confusion.

Other reviewers have said this book might be useful for people for whom English is a second language, and that's true, but it's useful for anyone who stumbles over such things as whether it's standard English to 'fulfil' your destiny or 'meet' it - or whether you 'hold' the reins or 'take up' the reins.

English is constantly evolving and no one textbook can be expected to keep up, but so many core words are habitually combined and this book offers comprehensive guidance on their usage. It takes a conservative approach, embracing the well worn and familiar, so you won't find much to quarrel with. Some more recent coinages are more problematic: I was a bookdealer for a while, and one client asked if I could 'source' a book for him. This particular collocation doesn't make it into this book and I'm pleased about that. (What's wrong with 'find a book'?)

A great buy - easily five-stars.

This dictionary is not a special one to buy. It is not deficieny if you don`t buy. English Collocations in Use and Cambridge International Dictionary of English - the most comprehensive English dictionary I`ve come across - is fine.
