Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375400664, Hardcover)If you find yourself in perpetual pursuit of the perfect word, Random House Webster's College Thesaurus may earn a place as favorite bedside reading. From "alacrity" to "zeal," "altitude" to "zenith," this reference offers myriad options in the way of scintillating synonyms (as well as apt antonyms). Organized in a simple A-to-Z format, each word is also used in a sentence--with different sentences for distinct meanings of the word--to help eschew malapropisms. If you're still getting your sea legs in the ocean of current vocabulary, the feature on how to avoid offensive or insensitive language (a crash course in political correctness) should help prevent any embarrassing gaffs. And, for those who choose to teeter at the cutting edge of the lexicon, there's a section explaining new hipster words, such as "def," "dis," "phat," and "bloviate" (look it up!). With more than 12,000 main entry terms, 400,000-plus synonyms and antonyms, and the handy "Thumb Index," this revised and updated thesaurus is a reference no wordsmith should be without. --Brangien Davis
