I ordered this title, along with Roget's 21st Century Thesaurus and Roget's International Thesaurus.
The first synonym I needed was for "coordinate," as in "to coordinate..." Roget's 21st Century gave me 23 words and phrases, Websters gave only seven, and Roget's eight. I've found similar disparities among the volumes for numerous other words.
Roget's 21st Century is a terrific little book, inexpensive, small, and easily stays beside my PC. The others, well, I wish I'd saved my money. But they'll come in handy at some point, I'm sure.
This volume is good but will be relegated to the bookshelf.
This one is very intelligently laid out in it's A-Z dictionary format. There also is of course the thematic index but I'm don't find it entirely useful for my purposes. Very quick and easy to find the word you're looking for. Plenty of synonyms for every word I've been looking up. If you're writing anything this book is a necessary tool to have on your reference shelf.
