It would take years of reading to acquire the vocabulary succinctly provided in "Word Power." Read this book and you would be familiar with great words, like Schadenfreude, azimuth, Preraphaelites, comstockery, and 2000 other terms. I wrote "Word Power" with painstaking scholarship. Hence, I believe you can get a lot out of reading it.--John Fleming

Here is the full review from Midwest Book Review:

Words have power, and a grand vocabulary is a sure way to let someone know you aren't just any old dullard. "Word Power: A Dictionary of Fascinating Learned Words and Phrases for Vocabulary Enrichment" is, if one were to simplify it to the most simple of terms, a dictionary. However, its content focuses on a wider range of words from slang to archaic words to the obscene to even deeply scientific terms. "Word Power" is a must for anyone who wants to paint a picture with the English language and wants all the colors available.
