I have found this dictionary to be very useful for home and at work. It has made some of the reports I have to write at work either more colorful and/or distinct. My boss also has had a tremendous amount of success with the explanations given and is finding futher uses for this dictionary in reports and helping others with verbage.
nice book i have ever read!!!!!!1
