As a freelance writer I find this book incredibly useful. It's just like a theasaurus, but instead of suggesting different words it suggests different ajectives. For example, I wanted to describe someone's eyes as they were slyly watching everyone around them. I looked up 'eyes' and found the appropriate adjective 'hawklike'. What an ingenious book. It's saved me hours of head scratching and thinking. I just wish it was still in publication as I had to order it second-hand and it took several weeks before one was found. But it was certainly worth the wait.
