More than a half-million readers have already been exposed to the controlled vocabulary in 1100 Words You Need to Know and the techniques that we devised to help them learn how to use those important words. We have received grateful letters from across the country and abroad, praising us for the timeliness of our selection--words appearing in newspapers and books, on standardized exams, and in business correpondence.
We realize that possessing a rich treasury of words brings material gains as well as confidence in one's ability to communicate and to be accepted as a mature person. As you spend the time to master the 1100 words and idioms--even 15 to 20 minutes daily--you will discover the pleasure of recognition and understanding when you come across these challenging words in your listening, reading, and conversing.
In this fourth edition we have updated all of the material and added a major component, "The Panorama of Words," where you will find a valuable sentence reference for each of the words you have learned. The material presented is consistent with our successful blueprint of interest, variety, relevance, and repetition. Regard it as a dividend on your investment.
Murray Bromberg and Melvin Gordon
