3.0 out of 5 stars not as advertised, and not very current 31 Dec 2008
By MMWW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bought this as a replacement for the 1979 edition my father has used for 25 years because he really liked it but it is falling apart... The Amazon preview shows the original 1979 copyright page and cover design.
However, what shipped is a recent reprint of that 1979 edition-- minus a few key sections (according to my father).
So not only is the content outdated, but subsequent reprintings have also apparently removed some useful sections!

Only recommended if you are desperate-- unless you can find a true 1979 edition and don't mind the outdated content!

To be more helpful in solving the difficult crossword puzzles that are produced today, this crossword dictionary needs to expand the words and answers content to be more up-to-date with the current work challenges.

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated? 20 Jun 2007
By my05stangrocks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
BEWARE! As I was thumbing through the pages of this dictionary, I happened upon a list of the Presidents of the United States and their respective wives. I noticed that the list ended at Jimmy Carter. No Reagan, Bush, Clinton or W! Went to see when the book was originally published and saw that it was first released in 1979. Re-released in 2003 & then in 2006. I wonder if Bantam just released the whole entire dictionary "un-updated" since 1979. Who knows what else needs updating in this book. Didn't think a respected company like Bantam would do such a thing, put out outdated info.
