Publisher Comments:

Over 1 million Synonyms...The largest, most comprehensive Thesaurus in print. Simple alphabetical arrangement — no separate index necessary. Separate subdivisions for the different parts of speech and difference meanings of the same word. Expanded to include thousands of new words and expressions that have entered the language in recent years. Includes clearly labeled slang and informal words and expressions, as well as rare, archaic, scientific and other specialized terms with minimum cross-references.

Our language blossoms out in the synonyms. The synonyms make our language the pictorial. All above is the truth, but that's just a secondary thing. The synonyms help us to see what we are looking at: depicture the word as if from all possible angles. Thus the improvement in language testifies the spiritual growth of a talker.
Therefore I would name the Synonym Finder by J I Rodale not a good book but the best friend.

This is, without doubt, the best synonym book on the market. I have had the older edition (blue cover) for several years and find it invaluable when I'm searching for just the right word. Whether writing a personnel evaluation, report, speech, whatever, recommend it for anyone who wants to break away from using the same words over and over.
