Format: Hardcover
I would have to say that this is the biggest waste of a reference book that I have ever come across. There are very few synonyms and it reads more like a dictionary than a thesaurus.
For example, the word "fear" first gives a long definition and the following synonyms: affright, apprehension, dread, fearfulness, fright, funk, horror, panic, terror, trepidation. That's it, 11 synonyms! My pocket thesaurus, which I had intended to replace with this one, lists more than 60 synonyms!
In addition, many words that I looked up - common words like "novice" don't even have their own entries! As an aspiring writer, I find Roget's New Thesaurus absolutely useless. If you have any concept of the English language, don't buy this book. You'll be sorely disappointed.

I was very pleased to have had the time and pleasure to have studied and read this reference book in question, i.e., Roget's II The New Thesaurus by Editors of The American Heritage Dictionaries (Editor). It is well written and is clear and easy to use. The index is well developed and the it is a joy to take it out and use it when one is in doubth whether one should use a word or not. Highly Recommended.

HASH(0xa1acb57c) out of 5 stars Indexed is better Aug. 30 2005
By K. Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just purchased this thesaurus (if you can call it that) for my office. It was a total waste of money. I can't tell you how many times I have looked up a word and it is not there. And for those that are included, there are no unique synonyms...I had already thought of them all. I actually logged on to purchase the original Roget's, but thought I should let others know that they are better off with a traditional indexed thesaurus than this useless thing.

This is definitely a waste of time & money. It's more of a dictionary than a thesaurus. They just don't provide enough synonyms & that's what I'm looking for.

HASH(0xa1acba08) out of 5 stars A poor reference Sept. 21 2009
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have two Thesauri, one at work and one at home. Roget's II, my home thesaurus, is totally inferior to my work thesaurus. The one I use at work, the Oxford American Thesaurus, may not be the best on the market, but it is far superior to Roget's II.

My wife is very disappointed with the New Thesaurus 3rd edition that we purchased it is nothing like the old one that we had, it doesn't have as many words and is totally unsuitable.
