        Comments about Webster's New Explorer Crossword Puzzle Dictionary:

        I am really pleased with this newer version of Webster's crossword puzzle dictionary. It replaced an older, worn-out paperback version which I'd owned and used extensively for at least 15 years. The new one has everything the old one had and much more. It includes a lot of information besides synonyms for words (e.g., a complete list of Academy Award winners, works of famous authors, etc.), and for many of the words it includes sub-categories (e.g., under the word 'cat', there is 'disease', 'female', 'male', 'sound', 'young', etc.) This is a very useful book for an avid puzzler like me.

            I don't think this is any better than a regular dictionary. I have several of them. Had I known, I would have saved my money.
