I am a dork. I put this book on my Christmas Wish List, and it was the best present I got. Well, maybe not as good as having my kids with me for Christmas, but fairly close. Ever try to think of a word and you can't remember it, it's right on the tip of your tongue? For instance what are those little things on the end of your shoe laces called? I looked up shoelace end and the answer was right there. Oh, it's an aglet. What do you call a dog's nose? Look up dog nose and the answer is: snout or m [...]
It’s not quite a thesaurus and not really a dictionary, but this word reference is a useful book indeed. Subtitled “For when you know what you want to say but can’t think of the word,” the Flip Dictionary lists synonyms, groups of words or phrases, related words and definitions first so you can find exactly the word you need.For example, the book lists numerous synonyms for “emotion,” and then goes on to list, in separate entries, dozens of definitions related to emotion, such as “ [...]
You know when you know there's a word that means exactly what you want but you can't think of it? That's when you need the Flip Dictionary. This is on MUST OWN NOW list.
yeah yeah, a dictionary makes my 5 star listI love this book; you look up the meaning of a word and it says the word you want - its kinda like a thesaurus but not (and so much better!).
Another must have for writers.
I know this isn't an actual reading type book but I refer to it so much that I probably have 'read' completely. In fact I've had to reglue my copy to keep the pages from falling out.I recommend this to 'anyone' who does any kind for writing or speaking and has trouble thinking of the right word! Epecially good for older people.You don't need a simular word or definition just something close and then follow the trail to the right one. It jogs my memory to find the word I'm looking for and sometim [...]
Wonderful resource book! Mine is well marked up. The synopsis doesn't give much credit to the tables that are in this book as well! If you want to know the military ranks of any branch, look up the branch and there is a table of the ranks. If you want to know what a baseball, football etc play was. Look up that sport and see the table that tells the move you want, then names the play! I just can't say enough of this "little" book.
Must have for writers, students and teachers. Even business people could find use for it. Very helpful when you don't have the right word, but know it's context or category, etc. For example, you know there's a word for someone who is afraid of the number 13. Look up phobias and you'll find "triskaidekaphobia." Someone who suffers from this condition is triskaidekaphobic. Voila!
A backwards dictionary! I checked this out from the library and now it's (sadly) time to give it back. This thing is so freaking cool and unique that I have to buy a copy to keep as a reference at home.
Okay, of course I didn't read this cover to cover (although it is a thought I had.) But if I had the money to keep books, I would have this on my shelf. And if I found it at a used bookstore for cheap, I'd buy it. Its definitely something I'd keep in my office.
I haven't really read through this entire book, but I didn't want it on my "currently reading" shelf anymore. I mean, who reads through an entire dictionary? :P But I do love this book. It comes in handy more often than my normal dictionary does. :)
I highly recommend this book for a user-friendly, comprehensive thesaurus you can't live without. Microsoft Word is fine in a pinch, but The Flip Dictionary is great when you need the perfect word to convey what you mean but it's on the tip of your tongue.
A great word finder for writers
A great resource for finding that word you can't quite think of.
Very useful tool and resource for writers.
I use this weekly. I love it. I can't believe I am only adding it now. The best go-to "OMG what the heck is that word/definition again?" reference text.
One of the best investments I have ever made as a writer. This is a perfect blend of a thesaurus and a dictionary and a reference guide.
A wonderful reference for a writer. I use it daily. I especially enjoy this paperback version.
This was the only dictionary and reference tool I used from 2001-2006.
I find this book indispensable. Whenever I'm stuck for a word or phrase, the Flip Dictionary comes through with so many options. Great for writers, students, anyone.
I've had a head injury and this dictionary has been a life saver!
A must have for writers!
OMG! How does anyone write without this book? The best tool on the market.
