Great Crossword Dictionary
from Richland, WA
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.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
Not enough crossword puzzle information

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.
FROM A CROSSWORD GEEK
By AUNT PAM
I AM AN AVID CROSSWORD GEEK, i.e. N.Y.TIMES SUNDAY PUZZLES. I HAVE GIVEN THIS DICTIONARY TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITH UNDYING THANKS FROM ALL. THIS IS ACTUALLY THE ONLY DICTIONARY YOU NEED TO WORK ANY PUZZLE. I AM ROUGH ON IT AND IN THE THREE YEARS I'VE HAD IT NOT ONE PAGE HAS COME LOOSE OR SEPERATED FROM THE BINDING. BUY ONE, YOU WILL LOVE IT AND ENJOY PUZZLES EVEN MORE

Webster's Crossword Puzzle Dictionary
By "Michael J."
from Lake County Ohio
This book is a "must" for novice crossword puzzle workers. It takes a while to learn how to use the book, and when to refer to it, and how powerful it can be as a resource.
