Review: 30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary

User Review  - Briana Myricks - Goodreads

Outdated. Published in 91. Best part is the index. Take a look at the words in the index, check off the ones you know, look the ones you don't know up in the thesaurus. Ta-da, a more powerful vocabulary. Read full review
