So I wanted to know what precious words might be "endangered." After all, I care about endangered species, this is the same.
Some of these words, OK, deserve to be put to rest, they're awkward at best, strange, dissonant, weird would be a kind description.
But that's kind of the fun too... You don't want just useful words... You want words to confound, dissociate, discombobulate and just plain put some annoying people in their place from time to time. Especially when you write it into a book where you know it can't help but draw notice... And its alive for another day, month, year.
So, it's worth the time and the money. Plus, it was just plain, simple, calorie and alcohol free FUN!

A fun book for anyone who likes rarely used words. The only weakness is that it is too short.Published 19 months ago by Shadows

I CHERISH this book. It has a lot of great words, its written well and the physical size and shape make it a great book to have on short hand to just pick up and reference. Read morePublished on March 29, 2014 by Blake Logan
This is an okay buy, the words are good, but there is no quick reference so going back and finding a word is a hassle.Published on July 3, 2013 by Joe Martinez
