Put your vocabulary skills to the test with this witty and engaging book. Improve Your Word Power is primarily a collection of multiple-choice challenges in which the reader is asked to decide which definition of a given word is correct. But it’s actually so much more than that. Each topic is themed—from words borrowed from French to words about colors; words from Shakespeare to words that sound alike—and the answers are wonderfully informative and accessible, each giving readers the chance to say "Gosh! I didn’t know that!" even with quite familiar words. Interspersed throughout are boxes that feature odd definitions, confusable words and fun facts that make the language come to life. This is a book that is aimed at readers who want to improve their vocabulary for the sheer enjoyment of it.
