What I like about this book is that most of the words are words that are understood by most folks, but rarely enter into conversation. It is also handy for writing instead of always going with the Thesaurus. Practicing the words out loud is nice also. If you even look at the excerpt provided, you see the layout of the book and a good example of the kinds of words that you will learn.
So why should you get this book? If you are studying for a standardized exam (such as SAT or GRE) then it's a handy reference. But if you are like me, you probably want to expand your vocabulary, though not in a way that makes you sound pretentious or overly verbose. Instead they are words that one might want to be familiar with in everyday speech but words that are not the most common. It is also especially nice if you are familiar with these words but want to get a firm grasp on their proper use.
I highly recommend this version due to the amazing format and sheer volume of actual usable words. Take that Dictionary.com word of the day e-mail! (of which 90% of the time are words I will never use) The other nice aid would be a set of GRE or SAT vocabulary flash cards. Though those focus on the most common GRE or SAT words and not necessarily on words one might really want to insert into everyday conversation.
It introduces new words, breaks them down by their constituent parts, identifies related words, and then provides the definitions and how the definitions evolved. Very enjoyable. I'm glad I bought it.
