Again, a gift to two people in my life, that was much appreciated. I often think of the author who was told he only had so many words to use in his lifetime and the joy he found when he discovered that was untrue. Cannot remember his name, but this book is one to give a lover of words delight.
Writers and student will love this book. Words are listed according to subject such as music or bussiness. Definitions are given. The section on historical hair and clothing may be of interest to readers. This isn't a book to read through, it is more of a tool. The print is largre and the topics well organized.
