Today I'm buying a third copy!

My dad loves crossword puzzles, and about nine years ago I bought him this book in a paperback edition. He raved about how useful it was and used it daily until 2001, when it was destroyed in a house flood. It had gotten pretty tattered by then, but probably had another year or two of use left. I bought him a second book, this time in hardback, thinking it would last longer. That book is now six years old and has pages falling out! So, yesterday he asked that I get him a THIRD book, and no other crossword puzzle dictionary will do. I just wish a seventh edition would come out soon; I'm sure Dad could use some updated info.

The best of all!

I gave my mother a copy of the 3rd edition for Christmas in 1968. It has been re-bound once, and the pages are very worn. After her death 10 years ago, I inherited it, and find it the best crossword puzzle dictionary that I have ever used. I have found wonderful words in it, so that using it has been very educational! I am going to splurge and order the 6th edition for myself for Christmas this year.

The best one I tried.

I got interested in crossword puzzles a year ago. Bought all the books. This is the best helper I tried. In the beginning I relied on it constantly. Now, I find that, through it, I have learned and can go it alone most of the time (which means Monday-Thursday and often on Sunday for those of you who do the NYT).

hardly ever fails

We bougth the fifth editon back in 1986. The pages are worn thin, and have separated from the spine but we can't be without it.The BEST book of its kind available to ardent crossworders.

Best in its genre!

I have not found a crossword puzzle dictionary which compares. The words included are highly relevant and they are nicely organized into logical categories and subcategories. Even the Swanfeldt dictionary doesn't guarantee success with the NY Times crossword puzzle, but it will give you a fighting chance.
