A great combination of history and language. I enjoy every entry even if the word is already common in my vocabulary. This was a perfect start to Levenger's ebooks - looking forward to addition offerings in this format.

Informative, off-beat, and an always enjoyable read, Bob and Carol Greenman's "More Words that Make a Difference" belongs on every writer's, and every writing teacher's, desk. Whenever I pick it up, I feel inspired to punch up my prose with fresh words we don't run into every day.

Valuable resource

Comments about Levenger More Words That Make a Difference eBook:

As a lover of the English language, I was delighted with Bob and Carol's book which is rich in beautiful, lively prose. Calling the entries "vocabulary words" sounds like a dry exercise in English class. To the contrary, the excerpts selected to show these words' use are compellingly written with action, description and character. In many cases I wish I could read the rest of the story in which they appeared. And I love that some of them are from more than 100 years ago. I look forward to getting this in the downloadable format.

The ideal gift

Comments about Levenger More Words That Make a Difference eBook:

Robert and Carol Greenman apparently love the written word, and have written a captivating book that highlights the craft.

While the word choices will build your vocabulary, what's more intriguing are the passages that contain these words. It's a real pleasure to read the writing of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Mark Twain, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Carl Sandburg, and so many others. This is so much more than a "vocabulary" book -- it's a collection of some of the most thought-provoking passages I've read in years.

This book is the ideal gift for educators, college students, and all those who value and appreciate good writing. It was a pleasure to read.

A Remarkable Resource

By

Comments about Levenger More Words That Make a Difference eBook:

Word lovers are in for a treat with Robert and Carol Greenman's "More
Words That Make A Difference, With Three Centuries of Timely Passages From
The Atlantic Monthly." Whether the reader wants to build vocabulary, recall
America's rich cultural history, or explore the work of journalists through
the ages, this book provides the means for doing so.

I loved learning from the book that Ralph Waldo Emerson used the word
dupe in 1857, for instance, and I was saddened when I read a quote from The
Atlantic Monthly's editor Michael Kelly, the first American journalist
killed in the Iraqi conflict, who wrote in 2003 this ironic phrase as he
prepared to embark with 500 journalists embedded with the troops, "On the
whole, I'd say, the phoniness quotient is down this time. We are spared, at
least, much of the death-and-destruction-and-quagmire talk that preceded the
last conflict here."

Whether it will be used as an historical reference, an opportunity to
build your word power, or as an interesting way to gain knowledge while
enjoying some of the best writing ever recorded, "Words That Make a
Difference" is sure to make a difference to those who have the opportunity
to read it!
