I love, love, love this book. It is the best thesaurus you will ever use. I use it before I grab the Roget's. It is amazing how this small paperback book can hold so much information. It has the words real people use in the real world. If you are writing about real people in the real world, this is the book for you. I'm not saying that the traditional thesaurus doesn't have it's place, it does. However, you will be so surprised at how often you find just that right word hiding here in this book. This book was the best investment I have made in a very long time. I ordered a second copy to keep in my bag so that I could keep the other one by my computer and, heaven forbid, not lose it. I would be lost without it. Don't let the word "slang" put you off. It's much more than that.
Quite possibly the best thesaurus ever! I love it so much I had it scanned - I used it so often in my translating work that the book started to fall apart and it's hard to find more copies, so at least I have a digital copy of it that will last forever.
Out of words on your great american novel? A good book to have to refresh your memory. OR teach you some new ones.
Excellent service all round ... Delighted
All the other slang dictionaries, even those online are organized to define the slang terms themselves. As an older writer I'm not particularly knowledgeable about slang much past my own generation. It is a great help in creating more realistic youthful dialog to be able to look up a "regular" word to find the various slang synonyms.
Even for a 1995 edition, mine appears to be very current and comprehensive. I hope the editors keep this handy writer's tool up to date with new editions.
Somebody really needs to develop an online slang database, searcheable by words on either side of the index. This is really the only way to compile something as changeable as a dictionary of slang. I'd pay to subscribe to one kept up to date.
