4.0 out of 5 stars
one of the best reference books I have ever bought, 11 April 2012
When I first purchased this book and read it, I am definitely sure that this is the one I have been looking for.
However, by the time I have studied a lot from this book, I realized that It had contained a lot of abbreviations and something difficult to understand at the beginner's level.
Not only that, but It would seem that It was written a long time ago and did not update new words which has recently formed and defined.
Nevertheless, I think that It is still a good read to look up when you wonder the origin of words. On a personal note, I place this book besdie my bed.
