   nice book
I gave this to my father for Christmas. The feedback I got so far is that he likes it, but the print is a little bit small. He said he is using it and works well, but he won 't throw the one that is in 4 or 5 pieces and has 50 feet of tape on it. He is 90 years old, well. A thank you honey, I needed all that honey!
   It's surely comprehensive
This is the second one of these that I owned. The first I bought years ago and finally wore out. This is very comprehensive of the crossword puzzle dictionaries I have used and have used. If I had a complaint, it would be that it has a limited number of film names and lists of some things ( Kentucky Derby winners for example go back for a few years ). But no crossword puzzle dictionary is perfect and of the three I own, I use this one by far the most and would recommend it to anyone who does puzzles.
   A favorite and I have them all!
Some crossword dictionaries are completely useless. You will never find your missing words in them because the clue is not in the dictionary. I have a number of crossword puzzle dictionaries together with an encyclopedia and humongous regular English dictionaries as well as French-English, Spanish-English, German-English and Latin-English dictionaries. I never check the answer for a puzzle until every space is filled up with every clue checked off. When I say this is the most useful crossword dictionary for American style crossword puzzles, you better believe me.
   Great for big and small crosswords
I bought this for my husband, who does NYT crosswords and mini puzzles and he loves it. He is a real techie, so if he uses a book, it must be good.
   This crossword dictionary is the best of the one's that I've tried
This is the third time I bought this dictionary. I wear them just until they fall to pieces and then break them and buy a new one. This crossword dictionary is the best of the ones I tried.
   Out of Date
This is an excellent reference book, which I have used for many years. Just think about the technology and political developments in the last 17 years. None of them are referenced in this book. I guess I have to revert to another crossword dictionary.
   Great Dictionary For Crossword Puzzles
I received this book many years ago as a gift. I enjoy working crossword puzzles, although I am not an addict ''. I do the daily in our newspaper just like that. One of my daughters started doing the puzzles daily, so I bought this one for her and she loves it.
   Helpful to crossword lovers
Plus, the older I get the worst spelling ever. Even if it is only helpful, it is very helpful in thinking.
   Don't Bother
Essentially, this is a big dictionary. I thought it would have explanations for all the bizarre things in crosswords, like if an answer begins with an actual number or for what some symbols - abbreviations stand. I wanted to print something because I do crosswords a lot of times where there is no internet. If you can, use a search engine to help. If I had paid attention to the timeframe of when I bought it, I would have returned it.
   My word not there!
I was spoiled by my old. It helps some, but it does not meet my expectations. It could be just right for you.
