I have been doing a lot of writing recently - both articles and pages for my website - and I'm so glad I purchased this book. It has proven so useful. It is not a thesaurus yet works like one. It does not give uses of words as such, but gives alternatives instead. May not sound much but this really works. If you want to find out about a word or subject - or be reminded - then this book will give you what you need by way of other words that you could use if you so wish. It says on the cover - 'for when you know what you want to say but can't think of the word'. This book DOES what it says on the cover (tin!).

i think this is brilliant - especially as i am a writer but i sugest that it is also useful in any household due to the easiness of finding the right word. we all have off days at rememerber the correct variaion that is needed and this will help expand your vocabary - wrote this too early and couldnt find the spell checker. lol
