Review: "Written by writers for writers, this innovative thesaurus truly advances the time-honored word source. Some 25,000 word meanings and connotations are elucidated by means of more than 300,000 synonyms, 10,000 antonymns, 250 word notes written by noted authors, and generous listings of example sentences. Many special features, such as usage notes, word spectrums, and a language guide, further clarify a word's many nuances and assist the user in finding just the right expression. For all readers, wordsmiths, scribblers, and hacks, Oxford's new thesaurus should be on every library's reference shelf."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005
