Not worth the money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Power of Words: Unlock Your Ability to Learn and Do Anything (Kindle Edition)
Don't get me wrong, this book has a good central idea.
In order to become educated, you need to understand the words. Not just read the words but understand them.
It advocates getting a good dictionary and using it every time you come across a word you don't really understand. Find out what the word means, use it in a few practice sentences, and then let it become part of your vocabulary.
The style of the book promises the world and often quotes from the great and not so great.
Get past that and it's still down to that one good idea; there's not much else here apart from filler.
Sorry, I'd love to be more positive but this book really isn't worth buying.
