A "New" Approach to Vocabulary Building

When you come across a Vocabulary Building books, more often than not, the sentences for "new" words are made up (factitious)for illustrations on demand. This limits the application of the new learnt knowledge in day to day life. This book takes the learning to a whole new level. The sentences are taken from newspapers, novels etc. This helps put the "new" words in context, thus making the word alive and linger long after you have studied it. Though the book is atleast four decades old, but defintely worth its place in library.

Absolutely the best book on vocabulary building !!!

I have to agree with the reviewer Rahul Ramachandran. It is a pity that this book isn't more widely known. After reading this book, all other vocabulary books are relegated to dust.

Fantastic book for vocabulary building and honing

The best possible book that you will ever set your hands (and eyes) upon for vocabulary building. This is THE book for taking your vocabulary to hitherto unknown heights; a much better and advanced book compared to Norman Lewis and others. A must have for people planning to take up the GRE, GMAT and other vocabulary intensive tests.A good book for the tests above, but however, tendency to get lost, especially in the foreign words segment is pretty high.Who cares! A good buy, excellent worth for the money spentAfter reading this book, books like "Improving your Word Power", "Word Power" and "Word Power II" seem passe! Now, that is POWER!!

The best of its kind.

I have read many books about vocabulary building and I have found that this book offers you the best and clear definition of difficult words, some are not yet appeared in the dictionary.

flood of words

As a foreign student,I was put into the flood of words
