Master Crossword Puzzle Dictionary

incredible source for resolving difficult resource on the market, bar none...wish the publisher would do another printing...

Best Crossword Puzzle Dictionary Ever Published!

I have a thumb indexed hardcover version that I just happened upon at a Navy Exchange Store in California. When I bought it, I had no idea how much I'd use it. It has gone with me around the world on several different aircraft carriers, and has been used by me and my shipmates as we whiled away the hours at sea. Since then the book has gone out of print, and that is a tradgedy! This book has to be the best of its kind. It's not as easy to use as some of the newer crossword dictionaries, but once you learn HOW to use it, there's nothing that even comes close to it in content. And it comes in handy as a regular dictionary when you come across a word or foreign phrase in a book are article that isn't in your standard dictionary. I've found information in this tome that I couldn't find anywhere else. If you love to read and/or do crosswords, this book is indispensible. My edition is still in fair shape, but I'd love to see a revised edition. What was Doubleday thinking when they stopped the presses?

top of the line, the Lexus of linguistics

Best dictionary I own not only for crosswords but for school papers,I would like to find it on a computer cd to go along with my New York Times puzzle site.

Best Crossword Puzzle Dictionary...EVER

Along with F. Forsyth in CA., my edition of The Master Crossword Puzzle Dictionary by Herbert M. Baus is getting old and USED! No other crossword puzzle dictionary even comes close to this monumental work. I would like to have a NEW and Revised edition, but I'll take whatever I can get. I'll even take two!

The best of all the crossword references

It is a shame that Baus' book is no longer in print, as my copy is about to disintegrate. After trying just about all of the other such books, this one is still my favorite and I consider it to be head and shoulders above the competition.
