A shining gem of a book.

Put down your dictionary , well for most of the time. With this book the derivation of most of our English words via Greek & Latin is explained. The construction of words using these roots, prefixes, and suffixes enlivens your word-power and gives depth to your understanding, offering a a treasure chest of explanations for 1000s of words. First published in 1965 - this book is still as relevant as ever in 2014 & onwards. I bought this copy for a friend.
