I bought three thesauri at the same time. I do quite a bit of technical writing and I needed multiple sources to draw from.

I ordered this title, along with Webster's New World Roget's A-Z Thesaurus, and Roget's International Thesaurus.

The first synonym I needed was for "coordinate," as in "to coordinate..." Roget's 21st Century gave me 23 words and phrases, Websters gave only seven, and Roget's eight. I've found similar disparities among the volumes for numerous other words.

Roget's 21st Century is a terrific little book, inexpensive, small, and easily stays beside my PC. The others, well, I wish I'd saved my money. But they'll come in handy at some point, I'm sure.

Should fiction writers use Roget's Thesaurus? I've read and heard arguments on both sides. Those who say "No" think that writers using It write overblown prose, using a long word where a shorter one would be better.
I disagree. There are times when the first word that comes to mind is the easy word that does not get at the real meaning of a character's thought, or the feeling I want to convey. If I just write, "the room was cold," I've shortchanged the reader. How cold and why does the temperature matter? But if I show that people wear two pairs of thick wool socks just to sit inside, or get up three times in the night to make sure the baby's bed cap is on his head, or have another character remark that the mercury has frozen in the thermometer, the reader feels the cold.

This thesaurus is not only a word-finder that lets me locate synonyms to vary my writing vocabulary, it jogs my brain into new was of thinking about what I'm writing.

This book lies on my desk waiting to help me write better. It must work, because I've won one Spur Award and been a finalist for another.

It sits on my desk within arms reach. I will never start to write unless I know it is near by.
And I use it often.
One huge mistake writers make is, using the same words too often.
After a bit readers will notice certain words popping up over and over.
When that happens those particular words begin to stand out like a lighthouse
beacon in a storm.
Soon readers will start to count them in their subconscious.
Not something you as a writer want to have happen.
This thesaurus will make sure you won't take your readers down that boring street..

This thesaurus is the best I've ever found, and the first one I've purchased in 25 years, since I bought my copy of Roget's. The editor has produced an exhaustive list of categories, which no other thesaurus has, that I've seen. However, I bought this hardbound after I bought the paperback. I thought the hardcover version would be larger and easier to read. Not so. The hardbound is the same dimensions and the same 6 - 7 pt print size as the paperback. I recommend the hardbound, though, because it's surdier and will last longer than the paperback. Either way, it's fine work!

It is a thick paperback and is what it is. But the paper is rough and the print is TINY to get it all in. So if you are young and have great eyes, it won't bother you.

I needed a new thesaurus and had to decide which was going to be my go to book for writing and reading. I read across all the reviews in a variety of volumes including the heavily debated international versions that use conceptual classification systems.

The problem with a person like me is my vocabulary is already quite distinguished, and I don't have the time to be sorting through conceptual ideas when all I want is a quick look at a variety of words that are on the tip of my tongue. Reading the likes of Henry Miller, John Barth, or simply editing my own poetry, I just need a simple guide and easy to access A-Z thesaurus. This is basically what I wanted.

Now if you want to go further into research and understand more than just simple word choice then the international volumes are where you want to go. Just be warned some people seem to like the 4th edition which is out of print. The newest 7th edition is much like the past couple versions and not quite organized as some would like it to be. For me I don't want to bother with word history or concepts when I just need to know the meaning of a word as fast as possible while reading or writing. This book does the job very well!

This is by far the best Thesaurus there is; I got it in the nice thumb-indexed hard-cover version, but for the office, I also procured me the paperback version (without thumb index). If you want to browse a bit, hopping from word to word to simply expand your vocab, if you want to find synonyms and antonyms or just words from a certain field of knowledge that need not be a direct paraphrase for another word you have in your mind, this is perfect for you. I got me a used version for a very reasonable price, whose dust jacket arrived in a slightly tattered state here (well, it was a used book after all), but the book itself was in mint condition and its contents are unbeatable anyway. Full score for the book and a compliment to the dealer for serving me swiftly, uncomplicatedly and unexpensively.

The font is REALLY small, so if you're an older person (like me), be prepared to use your magnifying glass or reading glasses. But, other than that, it's a great book. I use it nearly everyday.
