Containing a pocket-sized dictionary, style guide, and thesaurus, the Pocket Desk Set offers superb--and totable--scholastic and business support. Bound in sturdy plastic to withstand the rigors of backpack travel, the set weighs just 13 ounces total--little more than 4 ounces per book. Even the most laden of students can slip a dictionary or style guide into pocket, purse, or pack without unduly adding to the burden. And the rewards are plentiful (or lavish, liberal, and prolific, as the thesaurus suggests). With thousands of entries each, the dictionary and thesaurus are sophisticated lexicographic tools, while the style guide takes the fear and complexity out of punctuation and grammar. --Stephanie Gold
