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!
Received this book with some pages folded and 4 pages missing in between. But not to worry as Amazon will issue refund for the same.
This is the 4th time I've bought this book to gift to someone who is starter in english vocab building. The book is something more than enough for about 100 ₹. It gives best way to understand the words by linking it to its entomological origin and teaches us how to understand the meaning of a new word. It also helps in eliminating wrong options in mcq based exams. You can learn a lot of new words by simply going through exercise. Religiously following this book daily would surely help you build your vocabulary. Those who cram words from dictionary should at least try this approach of learning to remember words and I'm sure this way would be far better.
Good Book. You won't get list of words in this book to improve your vocabulary overnight. It has various chapters, each teaching you new set of root words and there various combination leading to new words. As author says " Don't just read this book , Instead work with it!!! " After reading the whole book you will surely feel the improvement.
Amezing book. Really change concept of old leaning methods. Learn easyly maney word with one root word. Delivered book on good condition. Nice cover . But paper pages are not very good quality paper . Other wise amezing book
I will keep this book forever. It isn't intimidating. In fact I did the initial test to check my own word power and was happy to discover how much I do as much as I want to know! Not intimidating book. Very well done and you can do at your leisure. Very well written. I would recommend this as a gift.
I don't ever leave reviews, but this one is a MUST!! The book is a great addition for any person needing or wanting to expand their vocabulary. It is super insightful and I'm glad I purchased it. The book provides a level of understanding beyond learning words. Just like any problem, when you get to the root of things, you understand it in its totality. I love the book and how it forces me to be a more critical thinker. I am so thankful for this book just what I need I have been lazy and need to back into my study time thanks a million I wear glasses the words or so small but I will work with will be order more books. I will keep this book forever. It isn't intimidating. In fact I did the initial test to check my own word power and was happy to discover how much I do as much as I want to know!

I like how the author first describes a few ideas and then introduces the roots and the words build upon those. The tests after each chapter are great for revising. You will easily learn about a 1000 words and will be able to predict the meaning of about 1000 more words which you have never seen with fair accuracy.
What I love about this book is it's arrangements of chapters and step-by- step method which really help to learn new words and uses of the words perfectly. Overall I love this book and recommend to all who wants to improve their English Vocabulary.
