This Thesaurus is hard bound with quality paper and clear font size. It will stand up to heavy use as an excellent reference source. Individual word entries (in alphabetical order) include the part of speech as well as a brief dictionary style definition of the term. In the case of similarly spelled words, that enables one to make sure they are pursuing the correct meaning. The list of synonyms may not be as extensive as the latest Roget publication, but it should be more than adequate for most users. This version was copyrighted in 1999. Because terminology and language change almost daily, there may be new meanings and words that are not included. However, period writers may find that fact important. The supplementary word list at the back of this volume may prove to be invaluable for many writers. As an example, listed under -phile, meaning a lover of the specified person or thing, we find 'logophile'; a lover of words. Under names for groups of animals we find a 'wriggle' of worms! A poet or author might be delighted with such a discovery. For everyday use in an office, business or educational environment, this could well be the only Thesaurus one needs.

I bought three thesauri at the same time. I do quite a bit of technical writing and I needed multiple sources to draw from.

I ordered this title, along with Roget's 21st Century Thesaurus and Roget's International Thesaurus.

The first synonym I needed was for "coordinate," as in "to coordinate..." Roget's 21st Century gave me 23 words and phrases, Websters gave only seven, and Roget's eight. I've found similar disparities among the volumes for numerous other words.

Roget's 21st Century is a terrific little book, inexpensive, small, and easily stays beside my PC. The others, well, I wish I'd saved my money. But they'll come in handy at some point, I'm sure.

This volume is good but will be relegated to the bookshelf.

It had finally gotten time that I needed a new thesaurus. My old one was printed in 1964 and while it's still a really good one many word meanings have changed a lot over time.

This one is very intelligently laid out in it's A-Z dictionary format. There also is of course the thematic index but I'm don't find it entirely useful for my purposes. Very quick and easy to find the word you're looking for. Plenty of synonyms for every word I've been looking up. If you're writing anything this book is a necessary tool to have on your reference shelf.

This is a keep sake! I needed to have the hard back book oppose to the online one on my laptop. I am old school. Need to have it next to me while writing papers

Can't beat it for the price. You never know when you're going to need help finding the right word. A valuable resource.

I replaced my old Roget's Thesaurus with this one and am very pleased with its clarity, organization, and completeness. The typeface is very easy to read and it is printed on high-quality paper. I like to consult a thesaurus often in my writing and I've been satisfied by the word offerings each time I've used this thesaurus. I would highly recommend it.

My sis is a vocab master, and loved this present I got her for Christmas. She said a hardback is heavenly, and just doesn't compare to a paperback, which you have to press open heartily to see the words near the binding. The hardback lays open naturally, so you don't lose your place, and it offers far more words. I have no doubt she will use this forever.
Another book to have on hand as well. So essential for proper writing or speaking I just simply can't say enough.
