I live with a personal library of over 57000 books and this has always been one of my top ten favorites Roget was an amazing man I collect thesauruses thesauri and have raved about this one online and in my books Rather than an alphabetical thesaurus like most others this edition adheres to Roget s principle of organizing the book by concepts and ideas giving the book great power At the same time the enormous alphabetical index is critical to using it effectivelyUnfortunately the index in this 8th edition is awful compared to prior indexes For example in the index to the prior 7th edition if you look up hook it tells you which section to turn to if you mean an anchor a point of land a lure or 3 other meanings The index of the 8th edition just lists the section numbers without disambiguating the different meanings This change is true throughout the index making the book far harder to use For many words this means it takes 5 10 times as much time to look up something than it did with the older editionsI understand the book was getting huge but I d rather have two volumes or pages and get a book that is as powerful and easy to use as possible I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the 7th Edition
