About the Author:

Margaret Richek, a specialist in vocabulary development, received her Ph.D. in education in 1974 from the University of Chicago. For many years, she served on the faculty of Northeastern Illinois University, teaching developmental reading courses to college students. She has published articles and presented across the United States on strategies for vocabulary learning, and is the author of VOCABULARY FORACHIEVEMENT, a series of textbooks for grades 3 through 12. Currently, she is Professor Emerita of Northeastern Illinois University and serves as a consultant for Roosevelt University in Chicago and the Bureau of Education and Research.

Review:

"[The Word of Words is] a comprehensive but not overwhelming book for enhancing college reading vocabulary skills. It has enough activities so that students can use the words in both contexts of reading and writing. It allows the students to gain an understanding of the word's concept as not just the dictionary meaning of the word... They feel as if they can really learn words and use them in their college pursuits."

"The book presents vocabulary in a very clear manner. The words used are words [students] can easily begin to incorporate into their vocabulary. There are lots of exercises and good tests provided that enable students to master the vocabulary."
