Word Power Made Easy New Revised & Expanded Edition 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.101

Word Power Made Easy intends to help improve the readers’ all-round language skills.

Summary Of The Book

This book, Word Power Made Easy, uses real life situations to demonstrate the power of words. The book begins by showing the reader how to assess their current vocabulary and how to start building word skills. It is divided into three main sections.

Word Power Made Easy starts by showing how to start building word skills, and then explains how to acquire better word skills quickly and learn at a faster pace. Then, the book shows how one can become proficient in building vocabulary, and how to keep learning new words and ways to use them.

This book uses interesting themes to show how to use words effectively. It contains chapters like insulting or flattering enemies and friends, talking about various professions, successfully discussing science and scientists, describing actions effectively and so on. Word Power Made Easy takes a root of the word based approach to vocabulary building. It traces the etymology of the words being discussed. Once the origin of the word is explained, a lot of similar words sharing the same origin are introduced. This technique is useful in remembering a lot of words, as they are related by a common source which serves as a mnemonic.

The book also contains an interesting section on esoteric phobias. It contains pronunciation keys, a test of grammar skills, and a section discussing how grammar changed over the years. It provides tips on proper usage, how to adapt to changing usage, and shows how to acquire the skill of natural speech without any affectations. It contains a list of some words that have recently been added to the language and shows how to build proper spelling skills.

Word Power Made Easy is an easy, practical guide to building a good vocabulary, learning about proper usage, pronunciation, and spelling. The book was first published in 1949.

It's a wonderful journey for vocabulary!

The methods Norman Lewis uses to teach vocabulary are fun, refreshing, and LASTING! If you struggle with pronunciation, spelling, and usage, this book could be just the magic you need. In flipping through the pages, I discovered that I actually remember nearly all of these words due to the ingenious, but simple format used by Norman Lewis. This elegant format is grouping words that have similar meanings together.I am delighted that the book is still in print and have purchased my own copy.Though there are many books for enhancing vocabulary, this book by Norman Lewis is THE BEST.
Finally Thanks to Flipkart,I ordered on Thursday and got it by Saturday morning from Bangalore to Vijayawada,AP.The Book is very light in weight to hangle though having over 700 pages and the quality is amazing and even this just makes you to read alone,I Recommend If you are studying for a test, the "Word Power Made Easy" by Norman lewis is much better than everything out there.

***Excellent Service***

I ordered this book through this site. I was told that I would get delivery in 5-7 working days but I got the delivery on the Third day itself. Packing was very good.Got good discount also. The discounted rate is lesser than the rate at any retail book store.Another advantage is free home delivery. I am very satisfied with the service and would definitely order goods in future. I would recommend everyone to try the service.

Great book if you want to increase your vocabulary

If you want to learn English then this book is not for you , Go for English grammar book like J.C Nesfield . But if you are better in English then this book is for you , it's an ultimate choice to learn more words and increase one's vocabulary.
It is very much helpful if you preparing for exams like C.A.T , M.A.T , X.A.T , G.A.T.E , etc
For C.A.T you should have vocabulary of 5000 words if u want to crack it , seriously 686 pages is enough .
For G.A.T.E - generally we get 15 marks out of 100 in aptitude and English section and this year 2012 General cut-off was 21 marks . So if you score 15 and at least 30 marks in technical section then you are eligible for IIT or any PSU organisation
First chapter of the book will let u know about extend of knowledge you have in English language , unfortunately it very difficult for a guy like me to score 40 out of 60 which is depressing but hope it will rectified in future
Don't keep this book in your bookshelf , READ IT SOLVE IT REVISE IT ATLEAST 1 CHAPTER per day

Guide book for Etymological etiquette

If you are preparing for tests like GRE or CAT which requires you to have a significant English proficiency and if you are having trouble trying to recall the meanings of those innumerable words and their usage, this book is will lighten the load off your back. It makes learning new words a fun activity. After reading this book, you will start absorbing new words like a sponge.

The book takes you on a piggyback ride through the etymological road introducing you to new words and the story behind its origin. In case you are wondering what is Etymology (I too didn't know till I started to read this book), Etymology is the study of the sources and development of words by tracing the its history and how the word was incorporated into English.
Instead of depicting the words in English just as words, this book introduces to the story behind its origin, what is their
significance, how to use those words, when to use those words and when not to use it.

By using the root words it demonstrates how so many words in English have common origins and how we can predict the
meaning of new words using these root words.

This book has guided countless number of people in their quest of gaining mastery over English by making it fun. Seek its guidance and mark my words, it won't fail you.

the best way to enrich your vocab..!

Many confuse improving vocab with learning word meanings by rote and consider it as a tedious effort. Especially for those preparing for various aptitude exams, like me, need to have a vocab replete with good words, this book will obviate the need to mug up meanings which is anyway futile, because we tend to forget them in some days. Getting to know new words and their usage in appropriate situations has never been easier.

Introducing readers to new words through word-roots is an innovative technique on the part of the author, and a fun-filled process for the reader too! Moreover, it will surely help you develop interest in etymological derivations and some anecdotes here and there which tell how a word came into being.. The book simply doesn't leave you at its last page, when you're done you have the knowledge and the tact of locating the words with same origins and deriving their meanings there itself, whether you come across them in newspapers, magazines, novels,etc.

Undoubtedly, you'll be happy with the results!

Absolutely Splendid !

Well,having about read half of it,honestly, this book is like a bible, its rather addictive and I bet u'll have to come back to it over and over again... !!
It targets at acquainting one with a gamut of new words - specific words for contextual usage in everyday conversations thus building vocabulary at an accelerated pace probably more than you've ever experienced before.The etymology- roots of words are put forth in each chapter so comprehensively that one can easily arrive at its derivatives.It would facilitate exact word usage[something we've always desired] for an expression/application thus making your talks,writing,discus
sions and presentations more vibrant and grammatically sound.
Mind you, you might sound slightly different[in a good way]talking to people-friends/colleagues :) once you've absorbed the content because hopefully you would be using this newly acquired glossary and not the generic words anymore... cheers !!!

This is not a reading book...

Don't read this book!
Instead, work with it. Write in it, talk aloud to it, talk back to it- use your pen or pencil, your voice, not just your eyes and mind.

This has been written in the introduction of this book.. And I am glad to announce that it is more than that... You not only work with it but live with the book, once you will pick it up you will feel like going on and on.. But follow the instructions because it is well organized for the maximum optimization..

I had just received it and am glad to live with it...

Must buy for anyone who want to expert English vocabulary...
And what it have inside is much much and much cheaper in this cost..
Don't think just get it.
