Product description

Review

"If this book could speak, it would be "a grand rolling voice, like the sound of an underground train in the distance." This dictionary is chock-full of this and 16,000 other creative entries. A good tool for writers, students, and those looking for inspiration." --Jennifer Adams, "Booklist"

"If this book could speak, it would be 'a grand rolling voice, like the sound of an underground train in the distance.' This dictionary is chock-full of this and 16,000 other creative entries. A good tool for writers, students, and those looking for inspiration." --Jennifer Adams, "Booklist"

.".. a solid addition to a library's collection ... Of interest to puzzle-solvers, authors and speechwriters." --Laurie Selwyn, "Library Journal"

"For writers, speakers, and general readers, 16,000 similes drawn from sources as diverse as the Bible, Socrates, Shakespeare, Mark Twain, H.L. Mencken, movies, music, and TV shows, and arranged into about 1,300 thematic categories."-- Book News

"Designed as a thesaurus for writers and speakers, the second edition of this phrase book fulfills its purpose admirably. Readers may use the Similes Dictionary to provide examples of similes; to find a specific simile, or one by a particular author; or to while away an enjoyable evening. The low price makes this title "as cheap as pearls are costly" (Robert Browning). It is a worthy addition to reference collections. Recommended."-- Choice

"a useful tool for writers, public speakers, and those who just need an occasional creative communication spark."-- Christian Library Journal

..". a solid addition to a library's collection ... Of interest to puzzle-solvers, authors and speechwriters."-- Library Journal
