The book is fine just as you would expect however, the print is so tiny I even struggle with new reading glasses

It wasn't until I opened the package that I realised it was the US version - in US English (a misnomer to me - English should be uniquely English).

Needing a new thesaurus I bought this American version. Reviews were positive and it was cheap. A mistake. For a crossword clue I needed a four letter word beginning with k for an avian preditor. I tried "hawk" but there was no entry for it. I tried "falcon",kestral" and "eagle" but again no entries. "Kite" was the obvious answer from my falling - apart Penguin thesaurus. This Princeton volume boasts on the backcover that it contains no obsolete terms. Hard to believe these words are obsolete in America, especially "eagle". Maybe I will just buy an up to date Penguin.

I was very disappointed to find this book to be small in format but thick for a format of this size. In the case of a novel, which may be read once or twice, this hardly matters but a reference book should withstand constant use without falling apart. The spine is gummed and breaks easily. I foresee that this book has a limited life. Moreover, the text is uncommonly small, making it hard to read. A magnifying glass is practically essential. I think these considerations should be made clear at the point of sale. I use Roget constantly and I see that I shall not get my money's worth. I award two stars for the quality of the contents but for the means of delivery, zilch (blank, diddly-squat, goose egg, hill of beans, insignificancy, nada, naught...)

I brought this book as a gift for my dad,who is an avid crossword fan.
I wanted to get him the best,and had always heard that Roget's is the best thesaurus available.
He was pleased when he opened it but now he has used it a few times,he is even more pleased.
At this price,it is a steal.
As ever,buying from Amazon,delivery was outstanding..it said 3-5 working days,but arrived in 2,making it in time for his Birthday and covering for my ineptitude.
