There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Since then I bought and worn out 3 further copies. Roget's Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (Penguin Reference) is my 4th copy. I've looked at and used other thesauruses (or thesauri depending on your dictionary) and always found this incarnation the easiest to use.
In most cases, books are beginning to lose out to their on-line brethren but I feel that this book gives you a much greater and easier access to similar words than any on-line version I've used.
Amazon's price also makes it almost a crime NOT to buy a copy for your home - your kids will love you for it!!!!!
