Each setting has suggestions for sounds, sights, smells, textures & sensations, possible sources of conflict (!),people you might find there, links to other settings that might relate to and more. These aren't only single word suggestions but also descriptive phrases as well (very good ones!). Each ends with super-useful notes & tips, and examples.
I like to just browse the entries and find settings I hadn't even thought of that I want to incorporate into my story.
Complete your collection with The Positive Trait Thesaurus, The Negative Trait Thesaurus, and the fantastic Emotion Thesaurus. All unique in the Thesaurus world and same superb quality. Want even more - visit WritersHelpingWriters website for (free!) like physical attributes, textures, shapes, symbolism & motifs, weather, emotional wounds (seriously there is one for that) and more. I can't imagine what the authors are going to come up with next, but I'm looking forward to it.

I like that it was broken up into urban and rural or the book with be a bit unwieldy. Definitely get the companion book Urban Settings Thesaurus. You'll be all set to describe any location. I also highly recommend all the books in the series.
Five stars only because I can't give it more.
I'll get this in paperback. I always do. Absolutely should be in every writer's tool box-seriously.
An author could spend every dime of their past, present and future royalties on a whole library of reference books and still not achieve a return on their investment as valuable as this thesaurus. I think I’ll creep into the root cellar and see what’s lurking in that musty corner under the stairs.
If I could share an old business tip it's don't distract your viewing audience's attention to anything besides whatever you got their attention with in the first place. It's kind of frustrating to be reading along only to see "To see how to do this, see my book "(name)". That would require me to stop reading your book. Still, overall, this is a good book with lots of things in it to learn.
