I have used online thesaurus's before but have found having a book to hand a far more satisfying experience. I put this down to the absence of advertising and other such web page irrelevancies. Besides that, a book tends to lend itself better to casual browsing and feels just a little bit more scholarly. The book is a very good size for keeping close to hand in the home or workplace. It comes with a very easy to understand user guide and includes a rather excellent "Effective English" guide in the center of the book. I have found this guide to be very useful as my English skills are at best rusty. Placing this guide in the middle of the Thesaurus as opposed to the front or back is a fantastic idea as it encourages its use. I am sure I won't be the only person reminding myself what an adjective is!
The version I have and which this review is about is the Oxford Compact Thesaurus 3rd edition from 2005. At the time of purchase there were plenty of Amazon traders selling brand new copies of the older 2005 revision for a penny. That is £2.81 (at time of writing) including delivery which I think represents fantastic value for money.
NOTE - An updated 2008 revised version can be found here:Compact Oxford Thesaurus: Third edition revised
