Summary, etc.: "'People judge you by the words you use.' This has never been more true than in our text-driven world of quick communications and often sloppy language use. Word Workout is a practical book for building vocabulary--a graduated program featuring thousands of words that begins with words known by most college graduates and ascends to words known only by the most educated, intelligent, and well-read adults. The workout will be a comprehensive program, chock-full of information about synonyms, antonyms, and word origins, and replete with advice on proper usage and pronunciation. There will be creative review quizzes at each step of the way and longer review tests after each level to reinforce learning. Unlike other vocabulary books, Word Workout provides a complete learning experience, with clear explanations of meanings, word histories, usages, pronunciation, and more. Far more than a cram session for a standardized test, the book is designed as a lifetime vocabulary builder, teaching a vocabulary shared by only the top percentage of Americans, with a proven method that helps the knowledge last. From 'awoval' to 'proselytize,' from 'demagogue' to 'mendicant,' Charles Elster has carefully picked the words you need to know, and given you an easy, fast, and fail-safe way to learn and remember them"--
