Best crossword dictionary we have seen.

We have only been doing crosswords recently, so we needed some help getting started. So I purchased the simon & schuster crossword dictionary. Boy were we disappointed! Could hardly ever find anything in it. It did have a good appendix with nobel lauriates and other specific stuff that was useful, but generally it was a dud. So next we bought the NY Times Crossword Dictionary, and, even though it was massive, it had no names, and was hardly any better than the Simon & Schuster. Then we found the Million Word Crossword Dictionary, and it is certainly miles ahead of the other two. We were so pleased to finally have a reference that was often helpful. Any crossword doer would appreciate having this book!

The Million Word Crossword Dictionary

My father who is 84 has gone through three copies of this book. He has ALWAYS worked crosswords and found this dictionary to be the best by far. It is very thick and paperback and that is the only drawback. The cover tends to tear up easily, then the pages get loose. However, he put it to extreme use, and it lasts for several years. Wish it were in hardback though.

The biggest and best crossword dictionary

Since I am a novice to both e-bay and crossword puzzles, I have found this book to be all that I asked for and more. The print is smaller than in some dictionaries that I have seen, but I think that is to give more entries. This book is as good for someone new, like me, as well as to those people, who do the New York Times Sunday crossword in ink! This book also seems to have all the most up to date as well as old - movies, TV, radio,etc. programs and their characters names and even who played them. I am very pleased with the book and even glad that it is paperback instead of hardcover. Hardcover would have been too hard to handle.

Best Crossword Puzzle Dictionary

As an avid crossword puzzle enthusiast, I was searching for the most complete dictionary to use as an aide. I considered many other books as well as electronic devices. After months of reading hundreds of reviews and handling scores of devices in stores, I decided the Million Word Crossword Dictionary was clearly the most complete item available anywhere. Most other items only had a fraction of the words contained here. Even those hand held electronic units never exceeded more than 25% of the content of this book. If you're looking for the best (and I mean best) most complete crossword puzzle dictionary, look no further. It's the only book that will always suggest the correct answer for virtually any word you may be struggling with. And considering the price versus other options, it's a real bargain.
