This book's front page claims ,, "India???s first book which will guide you, motivate.........." Oh really!! Actually it seems to be , writer???s first book :) ,
Look guys any vocabulary book, will get its words ,pages marked ,highlighted, underlined and for that the paper quality has to be good enough, contrary to this, the paper quality in this book is not that good. If I mark or highlight a word, this marking or highlighting can be seen from the back side of paper, in simple words the paper quality is not what a vocabulary book should have.
The vocabulary words which the writer wants you to learn are in bold font. The book is full of errors, and amazingly the writer wants you to learn some of the basic words too like, glimpse, stampede, vulnerable , evacuation, chunk, exposure ,fatal, etc.
On the other hand he thinks everybody know the meaning of words like Mylar, arable, numero uno , epitome, etc. and doesn't highlight such words and don't provide there meanings at the end of story.
Basically its just a copy paste compilation work.
BUT STILL the book is WORTH buying, hope in next editions these things get sorted out.

50 cool stories BUT only 1304 hot words!!

The book is good like all the other Disha publications.
The stories are simply superb.

The word level is not satisfactory.
And also it is NOT exhaustive.
Also among 1304 word some words are very easy(e.g. The author has also taken words like SPOUSE)

The book will prove to be good for Beginners(ONLY).

Author review..

A book for all English lovers. It helps in augmenting one???s vocabulary naturally. The flow, the beginning and the bottom line of every story defines the beauty of this book. It broadens your horizons as the author has chosen a plethora of different topics to catch your fancy. It is a textbook; unlike a textbook. You will look forward to each chapter, unfolding something new to discover for you.

A book for all English lovers. It helps in augmenting one???s vocabulary naturally. The flow, the beginning and the bottom line of every story defines the beauty of this book. It broadens your horizons as the author has chosen a plethora of different topics to catch your fancy. It is a textbook; unlike a textbook. You will look forward to each chapter, unfolding something new to discover for you. The author has added a light touch of humour, which makes reading enjoyable, while simultaneously displaying his vast knowledge of varied subjects- from literature to history, and from movies to technology. It makes you probe, think and analyze as well. Topics like Vocal Wisdom, Terraforming & Hypnosis and the Shakespeare Controversy; all are written in a very catchy contemporary style. In a nutshell, the concept of conventional pre-school learning has been presented a manner that satisfies the curiosity of the adult learner. Difficult words are highlighted and
their meanings, as well as synonyms are presented at the end. The Articles are very enlightening and add to one???s general knowledge as well.
So, all you SAT, CAT and MBA aspirants: this one is most definitely for you, so grab one of these at the earliest. Overall, it compiles words which would prove useful for mastering the language, and cracking these courses.

In a part of discussion Billie has been considered only the rhythm guitarist of Green Day.

b.In the topic Vocal Wisdom (P33) in the last sentence( Thus the time.. )the portion' the propelling this technology forward' creats lil confusion where in google propel stands for 'drive or push something forwards'.

If anyone can help me; please..

My kids needed a level playing field

i am too old to take any of these tests but my daughters intend taking CAT and other mangmt entrance tests.
I am located in the Raipur area of CHATTISGARH,and though good, the school and college environment is not as happening as say mumbai , calcutta or delhi.Both girls are academically brilliant but i want them at par with big city students in knowledge of the modern world as well as english vocab. I found the book very good in both the aspects. Being Engg students, they don't get time to read magazines, novels ,and this book can act like a Booster dose for them.
