Disappointing, especially from Roget s This isn t a thesaurus, it s sort of a half hearted blend of a thesaurus and a dictionary, and not a very good example of either I have apps on my phone that do better jobs at both functions I got this online If I d had a chance to look the book over before buying it, I wouldn t have bothered It s not completely useless it s just not very useful either Comparing it to the original format Roget s I also just got, that s immediately obvious This book is physically only half as thick and about half the page size of the larger work, even using a bigger font The front cover announces prominently that this book has over 2,300 terms the 7th edition original style Roget s International Thesaurus hasthan 325,000 Enough said.Seventeen bucks down the drain.

The words aren t as evocative as the cover leads one to believe They areoften esoteric The definitions are just awful Often multiple words will have the same definition without any nuance on what differentiates the words within a section I love the idea of the thesaurus though and hope books will improve on the idea. While this book does contain plenty of words I found it to be badly organized It was very difficult to find the words you were looking for The organization is highly counter intuitive. Great choice of words. That s not better than any average dictionary with some examples and when its come about a dictionary I always prefer online dictionary like Vocabulary.com which is far better and user friendly. I purchased this book when I started to branch out into different writing genres, trusting that the Roget s name would provide a comprehensive compendium to keep at my side at all times Unfortunately, in almost every single instance, the words which I sought in the thesaurus were nowhere to be found, making this book nothingthan a paperweight As a proof reader and copy editor and author, I now refer to online resources when writing my novels, in order that I do not repeat words too often My suggestion to all potential writers who require a vast array of words on hand to replace those which you have possibly repeated don t use this book to do it I was and still am very disappointed. Disappointing but still okay.
