Reviews - What do customers think about The Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms?

Hope you can shorten delivery time next time  May 3, 2008
Book recevide is very well but it took about 2 weeks to receive this order.
Handy Book for Vocabulary Reference  Aug 22, 2007
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms is an interesting research - and I dare to say: entertaining - resource. Because, contrary to what some might think, this is not a thesaurus, but a book which groups words of similar meanings into a topic and explains in a very didactic way and with examples what distinguishes in nuance one from each other so you can use the most appropriate words depending on the situation.

For being small, you will certainly not find about everything you want and when you need, but however, this has a reasonable scope of words that is worth the purchase. In the worst case, you can perfectly take this as a regular book that you could read in your spare time since is pleasantly organized and well written. Trust me, it is not as boring as reading purposeless a regular dictionary.
Great little book  Mar 9, 2007
This book is compact and you can take it to school with you. This book saved me on plenty of essays.

Insufficient  Jan 17, 2003
The title is a misnomer, as there is less than one antonym for each synonym introduced. Moreover, as stated by other people, nouns are inexistant, and some common words are definitely missing. For example, no mention of the word delicious.
One could expect from such a respected House.
Barely sufficient at high school level, definitely lacking at university level, of little utility to an experienced writer.
However, it could form the basis for a good reference book as the planning is judicious!
