This book is a must for anyone with an interest in language. I constantly read, and reread this book. It explains the distinctions and differences between words in everyday use, e.g. distrust / mistrust as well as technical terms.

Yes, I'm a wordsmith. Yes, many evenings at dinner my partner and I (and sometimes guests, as well) pore over this book and other word books. This one is nicely challenging because it often reviews connotations of meaning when comparing or contrasting with another word. I recommend this book without hesitation. I've had this book for years and I just bought one as a gift, which is why Amazon sent me this opportunity to review it.
