This is a very comprehensive and well-arranged reference work which has
already taken a permanent place on my shelf of frequently used books. I
recommend it strongly.
(Chris Feetenby, Puzzle Meister, The Mail on Sunday 20060219)
Worth its weight in gold ... vastly superior to books on similar
subjects. This book is a "must" and surpasses any other similar work
currently available. I heartily recommend this super book - it contains
a wealth of information not easily accessible elsewhere and sets
standards which other authors will have to strive very hard to beat.
(Tom Johnson, 1 Across magazine 20051001)
I was impressed with Chambers Crossword Lists and find it difficult to see how it could be improved very much.
(Crossword magazine 20051101)
I was continually impressed by the extensive information to be found.
Chambers Crossword Lists is a very comprehensive collection of words,
easily accessible and of undoubted use to all crossword enthusiasts. (Derek Harrison, Crossword News 20050927)
