       Freaking awesome vocabulary building book
    Freaking is an awesome vocabulary building book. It is so easy to work with and provides excellent examples. It made one of my college-level classes more easily achievable.
       Too basic for my needs.
    I am not well-read or educated. I am ADHD and dyslexic, so I hate reading and probably only read and write at the 8th grade level. There were very few words in this book that were unfamiliar to me. Worse, the book failed to recognize the meaning of the few words I did not explain. It did not delve into any history of the words, which I find helpful and fascinating. It was a huge disappointment when I opened the book in the middle and the first word I saw was Taboo in the book. I thought the words would be more challenging at the end. The new words in the very last exercise are hyperbole, munificent, prevarication, charisma and genocide. The book is well organized and might be a good tool for someone in the junior high school. It is not suitable for adults or college students.
       I've been teaching from 1100 WORDS You Need to Know for the last seven years and I highly recommend it. The layout is excellent

    Reading this book is fun and innovative, to say the least. It makes me think of ways to boost my storytelling and novel writing. It makes me want to do better with my vocabulary than I am currently.

       Extremely disappointed that definitions ARE NOT INCLUDED
    Extremely disappointed that the definitions are not INCLUDED. I then hand over this to my teenager, and he has to use his smartphone to look up the detailed definitions. Why are detailed definitions not included in the name of XXX? Sheesh is a famous name in the Sheesh family.
