    "Even though I don't generally buy thesauruses (what else is the internet for?) I ended up picking out this book for my trips into the mountains where I don't have much of a signal. I recommend it for traveling writers since you don't always know where you're going to end up. "

    "Great book for basic phrase! Especially if words escape you because you're stressed out about writing, or if you're new to the language! This handy little tool helps give you a step up! "

    "Mogliner's book, though suggested for children, is also helpful for aspiring writers of all ages and most target audiences to use as a reference for checking they are using the appropriate language for their audience's taste and reading abilities. It is not, however, a thesaurus or a substitute thesaurus. I give it good marks but not exceptional."

    "The Dictionary concern itself with the observable, from shapes to buildings to human beings. "Referably" organized, the book uses a handy reverse, definition-to-term format that makes it easy to zero in on the term you're seeking. For example, look up "Noses" to find "aquiline," "leptorrhine," and "snub-nosed." And as an inspiration to any writer―showing how it's done by the best―hundreds of colorful and evocative descriptive passages from such diverse authors as Dickens, Darwin, and Updike appear on facing pages, making this a singularly and richly different kind of reference book. The craft of description lives in literature, conversation, journalism, and personal letters. For help in painting pictures with the English language, The Desciber's Dictionary is one of the most indispensable reference tools you can own."

    "This is an excellent little book for beginner writers, if you aren't sure where to start or you might think it's too hard to get going in the current year with everything being so visual based then give this a shot. The author does a great job breaking down some basics of writing that are required to both get noticed and succeed in the current market and they give some great advice so you can avoid making the same mistakes that so many young writers make."

    "I was looking for a decent thesaurus for my nephew, who is just beginning to write in junior high school, and found Mirriam-Webster's Young Writer's Thesarus online. I looked through it, it seemed to do a good job of presenting antonyms and synonyms, so I bought it. He seems happy with it and says it's helping him with his papers, so I consider it a good purchase."

    "I purchased this book to use with my child when I noticed how bad their school's English curriculum was and found it quite helpful. During holiday breaks I have my kid take breaks from playing to do mini book reports for about half an hour, and using this thesaurus has improved the synonyms they use in a very short time."
