The 'Oxford American Writer's Thesaurus' is like no other wordbook. Rather than merely presenting collections of words meaning more or less the same thing, it offers analyses of those semi-synonyms, and examples of usage in context, so that the user ends up with a word that means exactly what he or she wants to say.

'Use the Right Word!' draws on this fine resource to make a stimulating, enlightening multiple-choice Q&A game. Each card's front features a sentence with a hole in it and a selection of words with which one might fill the hole. The card's back specifies the word that is precisely correct, then gives a lucid explanation of why it is and why the other words just aren't quite.

As something to read, this deck is absorbing and offers considerable food for thought; as a multiplayer game, it will induce the meekest of word lovers to shout the correct word before another player does so.
