Best Kindle Reference So Far
on 5 July 2012
This is an excellent product. I use it on Kindle For PC. It is much easier to use than the paper version. Searching is very easy. It takes you to an index where there are links to the various senses and parts of speech. This is the first Kindle reference book I have bought that is optimised for searching. This book is a model for other publishers to follow (including big names in publishing!).
Some reviewers suggested there were spelling mistakes. I haven't looked, and perhaps never will look at every word, but everything seems fine. Roget does contain some foreign words, some old English words, and some words in unusual, but correct senses. For instance, under 'desire', there is '... twist; thirst...'. 'Twist' does look odd, but is used perfectly correctly. Elsewhere, 'drouth' is used perfectly correctly in the sense of a shortage, even though, 'drought' is more normal.
So a good cheap book which is easier to use than the print version.
