"The book presents vocabulary in a very clear manner. The words used are words [students] can easily begin to incorporate into their vocabulary. There are lots of exercises and good tests provided that enable students to master the vocabulary." "[The Word of Words is] a comprehensive but not overwhelming book for enhancing college reading vocabulary skills. It has enough activities so that students can use the words in both contexts of reading and writing. It allows the students to gain an understanding of the word's concept as not just the dictionary meaning of the word... They feel as if they can really learn words and use them in their college pursuits."
