Word Power Made Easy - The Complete Handbook for Building a Superior Vocabulary (Paperback) Price: Rs.101

With an extensive repertoire of mental workouts to develop the subtle nuance of English grammar and build upon an enriched network of vocabulary, this book brings together a succinct narrative to engage readers with the sole purpose of enhancing the use of words.

Summary Of The Book

Word Power Made Easy: The Complete Handbook For Building A Superior Vocabulary is a superior reference book and guide that exerts all its efforts in making the content and its education more accessible and easy to use. This reissued edition contains revised content that is more attuned to the current idiomatic use of the English language and archaic analogies have been replaced through the book. The book is divided into three sections.

The first section starts with more basic nuances of speaking the language. Here the author begins by first testing the readers present grasp over vocabulary. It moves on to the domain of describing the use of the English language in conversation with different personalities including doctors, scientists, liars and in turn presents information on conveying ideas related to the aforementioned personas. It then drives on to the second section whereby the focus is not just on conveying information but also emotions that vary across insulting, flattering and conversing about actions.

The third section deals with complete success in mastering the language. Among chapters that centre around occurrences, personal characteristics and general conversation, this section provides tips on building the reader’s vocabulary even further and gauging progress. Every chapter ends with a review and the end of each section leads to a progressive check text that comprehensively involves all the content of that section.

The invaluable guide ends with ‘brief intermission’ where the author notes the grammatical delicacies of the language and does so in ten little chapters. Here the flexibility of the language, idiomatic use of slang, speaking naturally and interesting derivatives are discussed in a concise manner. The book also has a number of tests to improve your language. Word Power Made Easy: The Complete Handbook For Building A Superior Vocabulary is indeed a champion in the cause of learning English in the fastest and most effective way.

Word Power Made Easy was first published in 1949.

Good Book (The original one)

This book is a good book for vocabs!
I thought this was an extension of the 'WordPower made Easy by Normal Lewis by Goyal Pub'(red book) but actually this(white book) is the first original book.

I would rather recommend the 'WordPower made Easy by Normal Lewis by Goyal Pub'(red book) since this has an extended word list and is the latest revised one.

A systematic approach

I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning English vocabulary in a systematic manner. The novel approach followed by Prof. Lewis is the USP of this book. Words having similar roots in Greek or Latin are grouped together, and hence the brain doesn't get cluttered with new words.
Each chapter starts with 9-10 different situations (with an underlying similarity) and you learn those many new words, which are used to describe/explain each situation/idea. Then, the roots of each of these words are explained in a lucid style, followed by related words. Moreover, the different...

I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning English vocabulary in a systematic manner. The novel approach followed by Prof. Lewis is the USP of this book. Words having similar roots in Greek or Latin are grouped together, and hence the brain doesn't get cluttered with new words.
Each chapter starts with 9-10 different situations (with an underlying similarity) and you learn those many new words, which are used to describe/explain each situation/idea. Then, the roots of each of these words are explained in a lucid style, followed by related words. Moreover, the different forms of a single word (as noun/adjective etc) are also pointed out.
Each chapter is divided into sessions, and each session ends with exercises, which are exhaustive, in my opinion. Each chapter ends with "Teaser questions for the amateur etymologist", where you have to construct new words from previously known roots.
There are 3 "Comprehensive Tests" to evaluate your learning. The book ends with a huge list of difficult words and their meanings, almost like a mini dictionary!
Please buy this book NOW! Follow the author's instructions meticulously, and in no time, you will be able to FEEL the improvement! Good luck!

Don't waste 1085 Rupees

This is the book of international edition, thats why the price is high. Same book of Indian Edition is available around 100 rupees. 99% things are same in both books,so why to waste money..

The secret book to learn mental processing

This is really a book which has got all the fame due to its content, not by luck.
Sir Norman Lewis has created this damn book to teach, how your mind wanna grasp the words.
Obviously this thick book is not a dictionary, the approx page to targeted word is 3:1.
While by following the trend one can, memorise hundreds of words.
