For more than 30 years, Ed Good has been teaching very smart people--scientists, engineers, and lawyers--how to write so others can understand them. He knows that smart people expect you to use the right word, at the right time, in precisely the right place. And he knows the words to use. Certain words give your vocabulary added panache, compelling your reader or listener to pay attention. These are the words that form a Vocabulary of Success, and you will find them here, defined and exemplified in works by noted authors and professional writers in the national media. Once you learn them and make them part of your everyday way of writing and speaking, you'll have developed a Vocabulary of Success. Ideal for high-school students facing the SAT exams, college students ready for tests like the GREs and LSATs, and business and professional people who want to be promoted.
