2.0 out of 5 starsDespondent over the quality of book
18 October 2018
I haven't read it yet but who would actually have any keenness left after seeing the quality of pages. If your paying for the full book why only half white quality pages while the other half are yellow very low quality dusky paper used which will in no time get ripped off easily. Disappointed!
NormanLewis knows how to teach vocabulary in a way that helps new words stick. In Word Power Made Easy, he does this in several ways:
1. New words are divided into thematic chapters that make it easy to draw connections between the words. 2. He uses etymology as the scaffold to help build a knowledge of many related words simultaneously. 3. All words are reviewed multiple times in exercises throughout the book that use a variety of ways to measure recall and understanding.

The most amazing, scintillating, almost magical piece of work by the late NormanLewis. We should be lucky this is available at such a low price. If you are looking for a birthday gift for a child, there is none better that this! If you want to build you vocabulary again, look no further. You, like me, would naturally be sceptical about a book that can improve vocabulary. But believe me, this is wizardry! To top that, this is the most fun you are ever going to have solving an exercise book!
NormanLewis is also a very genious person and his book will inspire to all English knowing people to expand the English knowledge. Amazon delivery is very speedy. Thanks to Amazon for his good service.
This is not just a vocabulary builder but also a powerful source of some very useful information. This book gives etymology of each word. You will learn new words with their origins and then find out many words related to it. The author has categorized words into various professions, situation, characteristics, different phenomenons etc which is very useful. Because of this one will have words for almost every situation. Various exercises are given at the end of each chapter and after few chapter there is a comprehensive test to check progress. At the end NormanLewis has written a very systematic and comprehensive book.
Ordered this book in April 2017. I got the delivery in 2 days. The packaging of the book is better than OK. Now coming to the book, the book was written by NormanLewis and a must for anyone who wants to his/her vocabulary at any stage of life. Especially beneficial for students preparing for any competitive examination, having English section in it. Just go for it.. :)
A must read book. Very much helpful for students. NormanLewis has a different way of explaining things. You'll definitely not feel like reading a dictionary. Your vocabulary would increase drastically after reading this book.
