Compact, reliable, and with a new durable flexi-cover, this handy, full color reference (packed with 150,000 synonyms) has been newly redesigned, offering all the key information of a larger book into a compact reference. With its attractive color layout, the result is a remarkably complete, convenient, authoritative, and easy-to-use portable synonym finder.

Ideal for writing letters, reports, and essays, for crosswords, and simply to increase your word power, this is the most comprehensive color thesaurus of its size. No matter where you find yourself in search of a word--on the train, in a hotel, or even in your own office, The Oxford Compact Color Thesaurus will always be at hand, providing instant access to an immense vocabulary.
