It is almost useless, and a waste of money. To be any use to a writer, or even a crossword addict, it has to be comprehensive, and this condensed edition is not. I simply cannot find most of the words I want, so have to keep going back to the complete edition. I need copies handy around the house, but this edition failed me.

Everything that one would expect from a thesaurus. I had been looking around for something to help improve my written vocabulary, As an entry-level academic researcher this thesaurus has been and will continue to be a valuable asset, the only regret is I should have bought the hardback version.

Just bought one of these. Total rubbish ! Why ?
The Dictionary started at page 39 with the word "barley"
There were no listings under the "A" section .
It would cost me more to send it back, than I may get as a rebate.
Wonder how many more of this issue are now floating around.
Amazon, in this case "Total Rubbish "
It does not deserve even a one star rating which I believe is required

The same hardback edition with the thumb index is almost £40. Okay, so this is paperback and does not have the thumb index but I paid £2.97 for this and it's the 2012 edition too, not the 2011 that a lot of shops are still selling. It's weighs a lot less than the hardback too, so if, like me, you carry it around, it's a lot easier on the shoulders! Brilliant.

I was quite dissapointed with this Thesurus - it was advertised in the Mail as being brilliant, but the content is not sufficient to complete even the most modest crosswords

It satisfies my requirements and acts as a pointer to my copy of Chambers Dictionary if I find myself stuck for an answer.
