Useful for those who want to seem to be intelligent, but quite a few mistakes (pronunciation, spelling and meanings), so not recommandable for beginners and somewhat misleading for foreigners.
Besides, the one that I have is by DAVID OLSEN, but not Robert W. Bly, both editions published by Adams Media, haha...

Good GRE book 10 juin 2011
Par Shawnelle - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book initially just to improve my vocabulary. Eventually, I realized I might have to take the GRE soon. Upon picking up the Princeton Review GRE Wordsmart book (a small dictionary of a bunch of frequent GRE vocabulary) I realized I already knew almost all of it. So this book does have value to potential graduate students and seems to provide less of a dictionary definition than a definition grounded in how the word is actually used in literature and conversation. This detail can be both a bane and a help: the GRE tests dictionary definitions and multiple uses of the words potentially. This book provides one or two definitions at most and sometimes it's not the definition you'd expect in a small handful of instances. So I'd also recommend the Wordsmart book as a fail-safe companion to this book just to increase your overall knowledge of each word a bit more. (sorry for emphasizing GRE utility so much) The examples for the most part are fine though the poetry examples, which are few, didn't do much for me. There were a few words I just knew I would never use and a small handful I knew I would never WANT to use. You'll find some examples for yourself; some terms that just seem too anachronistic for modern use though they're probably included for the literary folks so that's good and some are interesting to take note of. Basically, if you go through this book with whatever memorization methods you like to use then you'll be pretty well prepared to take a GRE qualitative test section or read lots of literature.

Instant social status when you open your mouth 9 février 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Do you think that "limpid" has something to do with hobbling around on an injured leg? Bob Bly who may well deserve the sobriquet of America's most successful advertising writer has elucubrated a glossary of must-know words if you have any hope at all of not being tagged as a hopelessly inept social klutz.

This is a fun book. It may not make you the life of the party, but heads will turn when you open your mouth and knowledgeably utter a string of these words that aren't generally lingua franca among the hoi polloi.

I'm not sure whether Bly authored this tome with tongue in cheek, but I do know that most of us could stand to put a little more substance into our vocabularies. Even if you cause others to stretch a little bit. So go ahead, add a dash of eloquence, increase your sense of mystery, enhance your charisma and stop sounding exactly like every other dumb clunk. Just don't overdo it. A good vocabulary is like adding spice to a dish, just a dash will do you.

The best speech is still just lucid, to the point and entertaining. It's what I've tried to do with my book Postcards. Little Letters From Life Check it out and see what I mean.

I purchased this book for my younger cousin. His vocabulary was severly lacking and it his only been recent but the book attracts his eye better than a dictionary. Plus I like the fact that it goes straight to those words that can be more commonly used and it is an easy read.

Entertaining light reading and browsing 5 septembre 2009
Par Brian Crook - Publié sur

Most readers will find that they know many of the words. They may also disagree with some of Bly's definitions, which tells us a bit about the differences in how his and the readers' minds work.

It's like Chinese food - satisfying, but you'll want more shortly. To be enjoyed several times.
Pure pusillanimous pleasure... 8 mai 2014
Par Daniel Myers - Publié sur

Now, for Mr. Bly to put out a tome reflecting how to actually improve or at least sound like you had improved your educational achievements vis a vis your audibly visible vocabulary is a short effort, given his regular prodigy at all this "schtuff".

That he's extended opinion to 1200 of his favorite culprits is additionally laudatory, since over-cranked tech educations will often not even provide the necessary fast perusal of all things written, and is therefore Most Appreciated.

Finally a godsend to parents -- at least of boys -- that create a perfect, written down "wage against the machine" guideline from which to bet, cajole, plead, embarass, objectivize and one's male offspring.
If you can't make a good daily or weekly wager from this material, they oughta make sure you never get to land in Vegas again.

Just think, at a $1 or more per word, your children may get out of a public school education with minimal cost... they [and you, too, let's be sure...] will slide through english and all sorts of the other reasonably language-oriented courses for years -- the novelty of being an intellectual stud will carry them onto "real" pedagogic wonders... all for $20. Don't miss it....! :)
