Published in hardcover as The Penguin Roget's College Thesaurus in Dictionary Form, this new paperback edition of the 20-million-copy bestselling thesaurus has been fully revised, expanded, and updated for the modern home, school, or office.

I know--who uses a thesaurus now when you can google definitions, antonyms and synonyms. Roget's at one time was the thesaurus of choice, and a paperback edition was cheap and handy. But I have to echo one reviewer who complained that with alternatives a click away, it's just annoying to deal with such eye-sight challenging font. I wouldn't rule out getting a larger type hardcover edition, but the utility of this paperback is very limited and it hasn't been used for years. ( )

Time was that when vocabulary proved wanting (and verbal labor Sisyphean), that a paperback Roget could be counted on for prompt deliverence from adversity. But this 1958 paperback has sat on my shelf unused for decades, a hapless victim of technology -- and in that time, its print has shrunken to microscopic proportions. This would be a collector's item to someone who collected such things. Parting is sweet sorrow, but I guess the time has come. This review is my parting note of appreciation.

Now yellowed and dog-eared, it's still my favorite thesaurus. Words are in dictionary order and many entries have a quarter-page or more of synonyms, related terms, and parts of speech that are conceptually similar. "Lawsuit", for example, leads you to other legal terms and cross-references (cause, legality, plea, etc.); "judge" and other people in the justice system; "court" and other legal entities; verbs (sue, litigate, accuse....); and adjectives (litigious, judicial, legal....).
