You can find plenty of rhyming dictionaries with a quick Google search, and I've used apps that offer quicker functionality... but really you can't beat the convenience of having a hard copy that you can quickly scan without having to back out of, say, a game or a video to scribble a line or verse. On top of this, there's also a useful guide to poetry before the rhyming dictionary itself. Who can say no to that?

Old Poet Checks Rhym

This book contains rhyming lists of great depth. As an older poet and writer, I find it is very useful because I have forgotten some of the words I need and find new ones I can use. Gene Miller

The Best of The Best

The pros may not agree but as a novice lyricist, having never written a song in my life until I began work on my current project, I found this book to be the best of the bunch. I own four others. This one is the most used. The others? Well, they just sit on the shelf collecting dust.

Excellent for beginners

As a beginner at writing poems I have found this book provides a simple, straight forward, fast way to find a rhyming word. It's compact size is convent to carry with you. The title doesn't do the book justice as it is much more than a rhyming dictionary. It provides a guideline for effective rhymes, history, warnings and different types of rhymes.

The best rhyming dictionary . . . period!

Every poet needs have three essential tools: 1) a great dictionary, 2) a great thesaurus, and 3) this rhyming dictionary. True, the phonetic format takes some getting used to. True, some of the comments Wood makes in the introduction are condescending and downright insufferable. But the dictionary itself is the most comprehensive one on the market. And the breakdown of words into one, two, and three-syllable formats will save you a lot of time. I also love the fact that the words are listed one per line. That makes navigating the word jungle much less stressful. Oh, and by the way, buy yourself a hardback copy right off the bat. It will save you money in the long run compared to buying the paperback edition over and over again every time you wear it out. Songwriters . . . this means you, too!
