Format: Hardcover
Once again a top quality book of truly obscure words. As with the original book, this volume gives you a large number of out of use words with which you can totally confuse people or insult them without them knowing.
A slightly thinner volume than the first book, it is still well worth the money and I recommend it to anyone who loves words and enjoys confusing other people.

Love this book. But too many words to remember and use. Most people are not so educated. But great book to have especially if you want to improve your vocabulary and your children's.

On reading a review I decided that I should buy one for myself and one for a friend as we're both crazy about words. Have had a look through mine and it's funny and clever so shall send the other to my friend for her birthday.
