Jul 06, Fei He rated it it was amazing. A very good book to build your vocabulary.
The thing I like it the most is, when you find a word that can exactly describe what you experienced or who you met in the past, it's hard that you don't remember it. Apr 19, Lauren rated it really liked it. Let's be clear-this is a pretentious book. All books about language guidance, rules and advice are.
I did not expect this to be an unpretentious book for the simple reason that they don't exist. I read this book in a day, which is NOT advised. The only reason it worked for me I think was because most of the words were not new to me-as much as the author claimed we were "climbing a mountain" in our vocabulary.
This book really helped solidify some murky words for me, that I know when I read the Let's be clear-this is a pretentious book.
This book really helped solidify some murky words for me, that I know when I read them, but when asked to define I'm at a bit of a lost. At times, I felt the definitions were a bit lacking-not much effort was given to using the word in a sentence or explaining the part of speech, but for the most part, good context is provided.
I found the definitions to mostly be more helpful in terms of usage than a dictionary would have been. There were a couple dozen totally new words to me-and these were all great words! Except, why was "chrysalis" included? How is that a winning word. It reminds me of an old vocab test I took in school. My most favorite part of the book were the essays that he featured between word lists, or to begin or wrap up a lesson.
There are about 5 word lists per lesson, each featuring 10 new words. I enjoyed the author's prose, even if I did, occasionally, find myself disagreeing with his more traditional viewpoint. I am a snob about language-and in that way, we are kindreds. He hit on all my pet peeves, and it was awesome, finally, my gripes had a voice!
I was also gratified to find that I wasn't grossly mispronouncing too many words-some were pretty egregious though: Some of the articles I only gave cursory review-especially the one recommending a reading habit of at least 6 books a year this book is 45 for me. Others simply didn't apply.
I would definitely recommend this book to anybody looking to expand your vocabulary, the book is engaging and interactive, and really built to get you engaged.
I will definitely be using this book to brush up on my vocabulary in years in months to come, in an effort to solidify some of the awesome words contained within this volume. What score did you get in the pre-test? I got the lowest category: I would be impressed if anyone got any higher. The words in the pre-test are so obscure; you won't find the words in most books! Perhaps I'm getting a bit angry for no reason, but I think the simpler the words used, the better. Adding "difficult" words in your daily usage and writing don't necessarily impress people.
In fact it's quite annoying and distracting. That said, I will still go through the book and pick the words What score did you get in the pre-test?
That said, I will still go through the book and pick the words that I judge useful. View 2 comments. Feb 20, Ella Harkins rated it it was amazing. I love words so I really loved this book. I wish he had mphasized word history a little more, but that is a minor quibble.
Oct 08, Congthuan rated it it was amazing. I want to learn vocabulary from this book. Furthermore I think I can learn skill of reading from this book.
Sep 03, Nathan rated it it was amazing. A great book for increasing your vocabulary. If you have kids that haven't taken the ACT this will increase their verbal skill. Apr 03, Michael Goldsmith rated it it was amazing. Should read, over and over and over and over Only way to master. Apr 11, Reggie Kray rated it it was amazing. Mean score: Aug 12, Bharath Nalabolu rated it it was amazing. Nice book, the author way of writing can mesmerise anyone. Aug 03, Jingyan rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed reading this book so much.
The author nailed at letting us know how to distinguish between close synonyms and use different words properly according to the contexts. For me, it would be so great if I can look up every word that I'm unfamiliar with in a book though it would be extremely thick like this one. Nov 22, Tylor Lovins rated it it was amazing.
Elster has a useful way for learning vocabulary: He also has excerpts about the etymology of each word. I'd recommend this to anyone. May 25, David2smith rated it it was amazing.
