Additionally, Midwest Book Review states… "Expertly organized and presented… making it ideal for use with middle school students, high schoolers, and adults, and a valued addition to personal, school, and community library Education & Vocabulary Building collections."
Without a strong vocabulary, a person's educational and employment opportunities are limited, especially in today's fast-paced, competitive, and global society.

Great for or anyone looking to improve their vocabulary, including English language learners, Oswald's book is not meant to be just another vocabulary book but an inspirational and practical vocabulary-building tool grounded in the knowledge that an improved vocabulary can transform lives, help people perform better in school and on college entrance exams; perform better on employment applications, and acquire an edge over others with whom they will compete in life. The book contains over 2,000 words, quizzes, and word puzzles to help master important vocabulary along with Greek and Latin roots and commonly misused words.
