Morris Rosenblum, Maxwell Nurnberg. Building a good vocabulary can be of great help, not just to students, but to anyone who requires good language skills. So, what is the procedure to start building a good vocabulary? Assimilate interesting words that appear in magazines, news articles, and books? Go through dictionaries and thesaurus? These measures can help, but it can be difficult to remember all the words.

Showing Average rating 3. Rating details. More filters. Sort order. This is a very cool book. All about using etymology to boost your vocabulary. Also, it's from the 60s. Just so you're prepared. Mar 24, Amit rated it really liked it. This book will definitely strengthen your approach to vocabulary and mastery of words with several exercise questions.
I would not recommend you read this book without touching Norman Lewis first though. The primary difference that I found between Lewis and Maxwell is the approach each one takes while explaining the words and their corresponding etymology. Lewis makes it much more easier and fun to attack the word I'd recommend this a great companion book to Norman Lewis's 'Word Power Made Easy'. Lewis makes it much more easier and fun to attack the words and master them.
This book would have felt like a drag if it wasn't for Lewis. This book is not for a beginner. The approach is superb and is a serious vocab builder.
