Great Crossword Dictionary

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.

Pros

  • Easy To Understand
  • Informative
  • Relevant
  • Well Written

Best Uses

  • Reference
Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cons

  • Disappointing
  • Not What I Expected
Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend this to a friend
