This book gives you the sort of information that you would normally spend ages trying to find in all the normal crossword reference books, but it does it in seconds. I have started to use it for the Telegraph Crosswords on Saturday and Sunday and it almost feels like cheating.

An exciting and updated Chambers Crossword Dictionary. This is a must for crossword addicts with its in depth detail and discription of so many words. This was a replacement for a previous edition that had been used and used again and again to almost destruction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for all cruciverbalists. 18 April 2013
By David H J Ashdown TOP 500 REVIEWER
If you're into crosswords you need this solver, it's so much better than a thesaurus as word lengths are separated and lots of lists are included. Since buying it my wife and I have not used the dictionary or any other reference book when doing crosswords.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crossword Book Review 8 Oct 2010
By Carmel
For someone who likes to do cryptic crosswords but is not very good at it, this is a very good book to help you solving the clues.
The thesaurus sorts the useful words into the number of letters, which makes it easier to look for the size of word you need.

I hadn't expected this book to be quite so large or heavy but being new to cryptic crosswords it has already proved to be a big help.
