Yes I agree that this is a good thesaurus and well put together and organized into catagories that are easy to find and the index is great but I wish they included more words but when I look back to when I bough this book I do think that it was good for the price and it is quite handy but I would advise high school and college students to look for a more comprohensive thesaurus but this is good for when you are doing things like writing a letter and are tired of using the same words and want a different word that means the same thing.

This is one of the most handy and user-friendly thesaurus that I've used. It helps make the occasionally irksome word hunts efficient and a delight. This is an excellent first reference point that usually suffices without the need for consulting a more elaborate thesaurus.
Warning: This reference book can be addictive once you discover its vocabulary-enchancing functionality and even its entertainment value.

This is easily the best pocket-sized thesaurus that I have seen, and I own more than a dozen thesauri, large and small. A more comprehensive thesaurus with excellent word lists (e.g. horse breeds, phobias, shades of red etc.) is The Concise Oxford Thesaurus (ISBN: 0198601263). However, for general writing, I think this one has the highest value-to-weight ratio.
