It's tough to recommend buying a thesaurus these days when there are so many resources available on the web and built-in to word processing applications that will do the job. Nevertheless, I've kept a copy of this thesaurus close at hand for decades now and I am usually much more satisfied with the results I get from using it than from electronic sources. After my copy practically disintegrated from the ravages of time, I finally sprang for this latest edition. While I can't say it looks much different from the ancient one I had, it has been updated extensively with new phrases, and more words have been added. I like the dictionary-style organization, but that will be a matter of personal preference for you. I've also found this book to be extremely helpful in studying for standardized tests. For those who take writing seriously enough to want to use the word that best conveys their thoughts, this thesaurus will be an excellent and very affordable resource.

"A Thesaurus is not a dinosaur." This is not just a play on words. I've heard it said that a printed thesaurus is a "dinosaur;" you can get everything you need from the worldwide web.

Then why do I have this copy next to my computer?

Look, the www is convenient and accessible... except when it isn't. The right word is there... except when it isn't. And this paperback edition of the New American Roget's College Thesaurus is so inexpensive, it IS always there, just like my trustworthy copy of Webster's Dictionary.

If you know you are going to be marooned on an island for a few years, bring along a copy of this book. If you end up having nothing to write on, you can at least use it as a fire starter!

I find this reference book most helpful due to the fact that it incorporates the style of a dictionary. It provides abundant information for words which assist me in utilizing them in numerous formats. I recommend this item with confidence to anyone who wishes to improve their writing skills.

well... one thing technology hasn't done is make it easy to locate a word quickly in this thesaurus on a reading device like Kindle. Using the search function helps but it still doesn't give a direct hit because this is, after all, a thesaurus. So one word could be in there dozens of times. I'd stick with the print copy if you must have the thesaurus.

I found the Roget's College Thesaurus to be very beneficial when I need to have a handy reference guide and tool to use for all of my writing documents. However, I wish I could obtain this book in a larger sized format and in hard cover.

I return to this thesaurus time and time again! It's great to have handy whenever you're writing a paper or just looking for other words to describe something. Of course there's always an online thesaurus if you don't have the book.

Roget's Thesaurus? Who would attempt to write without it? It provides useful alternatives to hackneyed words and makes helpful selections. No essay, term paper or novel should be written without one.
