5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best reference books I own 6 Jan 2014
By C. Eaker - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Writing today tends to be overly elaborate which leads to too many words when fewer would suffice. This book, the _Dictionary of Alternatives to Worn-Out Words and Phrases_, helps you find a more professional, simpler way to write countless wordy phrases. You have to watch out though -- some of the phrases are so ingrained in our mind, you don't realize they are worn out. But this book will help you write more simply and more clearly. A useful purchase for anyone who has to write.
2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but would not recommend 22 Aug 2014

I would not recommend this book because many of the entries does not give you an alternative, it just says don't use it. I bought this book so I could find better words not to tell don't use it and not give me an alternative. It was a waste of money in my opinion. Sorry but that is the way I feel about it!!
