About the Book

The competition is small, the rewards are great.
Word development stops for most people when they leave school. This need not be. There is a book that can help you read, write, talk and think your way to success with words.
PERHAPS you have admired him before: the person who has a way with words, who commands attention, who finds success. Invariably he will call up the right word to make a point, win an argument, turn an audience in his favor. He is one of the millionaires of language.
Mark Twain said it best: "The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between lightning and the lightning bug" When you need it, the right word perfectly placed can help you:
• Hold your own in any conversation
• Compose letters with flair and style
• Send off a powerful memo or report
• Say and write exactly what you mean
• Find new success with words, with your career
Now you can find the key word, the right word, the hardest working word—in an instant— by using Family Word Finder, the book from the word experts at Reader's Digest. It works like a thesaurus at giving you the perfect word for the job, but it is organized like a good dictionary. Put it to work, and it will arm you with a profitable storehouse of words. It will make you word rich.
How Does It Work? Fast. In familiar A to Z format. With 896 pages of real, specific help. With 10,000 key words (the most powerful words in our language) plus 200,000 more words (synonyms, antonyms, related words, foreign words, slang words). With word histories that help build your vocabulary. And with thousands of sample sentences and quotations that make every word come alive.
At a glance Family Word Finder can deliver the vivid word, the precise word, the right word that packs more punch than the overworked word you may have started with. Quickly and comfortably it leads you to the word you need. It puts words in proper context. It helps you avoid word mix-ups, clear up problems with words, find substitute words. In foolproof dictionary form, it saves you time groping for a word, eliminates having to settle for a mediocre stand-in. And it helps end a loss for words by helping you get through to others with your thoughts and ideas.
With this giant "word bank" at hand, the words that used to be "on the tip of your tongue" will come flying off to help you drive home a point, warm up a personal letter, wind up a crucial memo, make others see and feel exactly how you feel.
Who Will Use It? Family Word Finder is for career women and businessmen who want to get ahead, for parents who want to set a good vocabulary example for their children, for students who would like to participate more in classroom discussions and earn top marks on reports and speeches.
