It's alot more in depth than the pocket thesaurus i've had for years, with plenty of related words on its 1127 pages. The explanation of the 'Features' and 'Structure' of the Thesaurus at the front is short and snappy and easy to refer to. There's no huge foreward, just the facts. The typeface isn't as small as the same edition dictionary, so it's easier to read than a dictionary.
The edition I bought, the one on this page published in 2004 is a match to the The Chambers Dictionary 10th Edition, both the same size/shape with matching covers and I'm very pleased to own them both, a perfect pair on my shelf.
I recommend this thesaurus wholeheartedly, completely, enthusiastically, emphatically, warmly, heartily, passionately, sincerely, genuinely, unreservedly.
Usual quality design and ease of use is what you expect from Chambers.
Text is done in a black bold style for each word which is very easy to thumb through.
In fact shame they don't do a thumb index for this Thesaurus but this is a small complaint because the book is near perfect. What I like more than anything else is that it's been created with a lot of fun and humour. I love the little proverbs and quotations throughout as well as the handy lists that tell you things like every type of thread used. Genius!! You never know when you might need to know something like that. By far the best Thesaurus around. Go buy it!!
Which I required..
Over the past number of years we have been using the Collins Thesaurus A to Z and found it had an awful lot of ommissions which caused various problems the Chambers Thesaurus has a greter number of collective words and is a great asset.
