From the Inside Flap

The original Roget's Thesaurus, with its ingenious thematic organization, served as a benchmark in language reference books for nearly 100 years. This new Roget edition of the renowned Webster's New World(TM) Thesaurus features an all-new thematic index, based on Roget's original categories, that provides a new means of access to the body of the thesaurus without sacrificing the proven usefulness of its A-Z structure. New introductory material reintroduces Roget's organizational technique to a new generation of thesaurus users. A useful and entertaining appendix provides lists of important terms grouped by their endings, such as -cracy (government types), -ology (fields of scholarship), and more. Based on an alphabetical list of more than 30,000 of the words most commonly used by writers and speakers in America, Webster's New World(TM) Roget's A-Z Thesaurus suggests over 300,000 synonymous, related, and derived terms to help you say what you really mean to say. Entries include brief definitions to distinguish among the various senses of words and their related synonyms. Idioms of all sorts are included, an unusual and enriching feature in a thesaurus. Extensive synonym studies provide even deeper and more nuanced information, as well as examples invaluable for sure-footed usage guidance. Writers, speakers, editors, and students will find that Webster's New World is, more than ever before, the most helpful and effective word resource of all. Webster's New World(TM) is the name millions of people trust for language reference books. For decades the Webster's New World staff has maintained an extensive language-tracking program and from it created the finest dictionaries and language guides available. The premier dictionary of American English and the official dictionary of the Associated Press, Webster's New World(TM) College Dictionary is now available in its Fourth Edition - revised and updated with over 5,000 new entries and a full-color world atlas. These handy pocket-size references, with durable vinyl covers, are ideal for students. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It does a really good job of finding good words to use instead of other words that aren't as good.
M. Mihalevich
In short, this is an excellent reference for a beginner (my ten-year-old frequently uses this thesaurus) as well as a seasoned professional.
Jl Metcalf
Everyone in the family has used the New World Thesaurus at one time or another since our purchase.

Format: Hardcover
This thesaurus is divided into two main sections: Roget's style thematic index and a dictionary style alphabetized index.
The thematic index is divided into six areas, covering less than 20 pages:
Abstract Concepts
Spatial Concepts
Physical and material Concepts
Human Intellect
Human Personality and Actions
Human Emotions and Beliefs
For researching ideas, this first part is invaluable.
However, the vast majority of the time, I use the extraordinarily convenient dictionary style index, covering nearly 900 pages. It's easy - if you need a new word to cover the same tired old word you've been using, just look it up. For example, here's the entry for the common word, friend:
Friend, n. 1. [a person with whom one has mutual attachment] - Syn. Companion, intimate, confidant, comrade, familiar, schoolmate, playmate, best friend, close friend, roommate, bedfellow, fellow, fast friend, bosom friend, boon companion, mate alter ego, other self, soul mate, crony*, buddy*, sidekick*, bosom buddy*, homeboy*, homegirl*. Ant. Foe, ENEMY, stranger.
2. [An ally] Syn. Compatriot, confrere, colleague; see associate (in boldface)
3. [A patron] -- Syn. Supporter, backer, advocate, sympathizer; see patron (in boldface) 1.
Make friends with (in bold face) - Syn. Befriend, strike up a friendship with, buddy up to*; see associate (in boldface) 1.
When a word is in bold face, it means that the word is included in the thesaurus and may have other suggestions for you. The number after the bold face tells where in the entry to look for suggestions. The noun form of the word friend has three numbers referring to different definitions.

Even though I'm a die-hard Merriam-Webster user, I have to say that this thesaurus well exceeds the M-W Collegiate one in both resourcefulness and usability. Extensive, well-organized and user-friendly. A powerful tool to empower your writing.

I replaced my old Roget's Thesaurus with this one and am very pleased with its clarity, organization, and completeness. The typeface is very easy to read and it is printed on high-quality paper. I like to consult a thesaurus often in my writing and I've been satisfied by the word offerings each time I've used this thesaurus. I would highly recommend it.

Webster's New World Thesaurus is the consummate source for those who pine to augment their subjacent grasp of the English lexicon. The author of this tome has mustered a grand assemblage of words -- all of which will prove utile when attempting to woo the opposite sex.

With a plethora of words to cull through, Webster's New World Thesaurus will provide you with the minutia you to need to help you imply intelligence, even if you're a mere plebeian.

I bought three thesauri at the same time. I do quite a bit of technical writing and I needed multiple sources to draw from.

I ordered this title, along with Roget's 21st Century Thesaurus and Roget's International Thesaurus.

The first synonym I needed was for "coordinate," as in "to coordinate..." Roget's 21st Century gave me 23 words and phrases, Websters gave only seven, and Roget's eight. I've found similar disparities among the volumes for numerous other words.

Roget's 21st Century is a terrific little book, inexpensive, small, and easily stays beside my PC. The others, well, I wish I'd saved my money. But they'll come in handy at some point, I'm sure.

This volume is good but will be relegated to the bookshelf.

Everyone in the family has used the New World Thesaurus at one time or another since our purchase. It's easy to use and complete. Anyone with kids in school or adults who have to develop content in their jobs will find this book a valuable resource.
