If your skill with words isn't up to scratch, you may find yourself sidelined or ignored at work and elsewhere. You create an impression with what you write, and a weak or incorrect vocabulary is a serious liability.

Awesome Vocabulary offers a painless way to build an exceptional vocabulary. Readers will discover comprehensive, useful lists of words and exercises focused on improving word choices. They'll also learn:

  • Tricks to reveal the meaning of new words
  • Memory devices to help distinguish between similar words
  • The difference between using words to impress and using words that make their meanings clear
  • Examples of writing—correct and incorrect, attractive and unlovely, persuasive and off-putting—that clearly show the right stuff and how to amend the wrong stuff
  • The secret to "balanced prose": the Rule of Three
  • Avoiding repetition and redundancy
  • The proper vocabulary for the proper occasion: business letters, e-mails, and casual conversation
