Publisher's Summary

The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, eloquent, or persuasive. Others say that, uh, you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and making a lasting impression. Here's a quiz to help you rate the state of your vocabulary:

Do you know that to peruse a book is not to skim through it?
Do you know the difference between enormous and enormity?
Do you know the noun form of dubious?
If you answered no to any of these questions, you need Word Smart. Based on the best selling book, the audio Word Smart will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know!
This program features concise, accurate definitions; great examples and stories that teach words in context; and mnemonics to make it all stick.

Great learning tool

This is a great way to learn sophisticated English Vocabulary. Unlike some other vocabulary-teaching audiobooks that just read words and definitions aloud, this one puts them in context and stories that are easy to remember. The interaction of both narrators adds to the learning experience.

Good, effective, but without attachment

This audio version is quite useful. The conversation is clear and the little senarios at the endof each section are also fun. The major drawback is that the downloaded version does not include the text attachment it is supposed to have. Therefore, you sometimes have difficulty in spelling of each word, and you do not have a reminder card.

Other than that, I enjoyed it very much!
