Great way to increase vocabulary
Although many of these words won't be used in daily conversation, the definitions of these words has been helpful in listening to or reading books, as I have come across many of these words in various books. (Did the authors of those books listen to this book?) The conversational style is just superfluous at times but overall the readers do a great job at reinforcing the definitions. I was able to remember definitions upon hearing the words months after listening to this book.

Entertaining way to build your vocabulary.
The system they've got for stamping the words on your brain is effective- I learned more than a couple five dollar words that I'm sure I'll never forget. The banter between the hosts is funny, albeit sometimes a bit tiring. One glaring problem, I think, is that they never spell the words they're imparting. On some of the words, it's unclear exactly what the words looks like- "be" or "de", for example- and just a quick spelling would have been extremely helpful. Overall, though, a fun way to learn a thing or two.
