5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and well organized December 13, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you write, you must have a Thesaurus! December 19, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"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!

1.0 out of 5 stars No Search Function November 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I cannot recommend a thesaurus for Kindle that has no search function. To get to a target term requires paging & paging & . . . Or you can guess how far to "go to" and repeatedly page back or forward. Too frustrating & time consuming for Kindle users.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best November 4, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
My High school copy of Rogets Thesaurus finally went from 2 pieces to 4. I've tried other thesaurus, but I prefer Roget's. So naturally I bought the Roget's.

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
