5.0 out of 5 stars First Class and fully comprehensive 29 Nov 2001
Format:Hardcover
This is undoubtedly the best and most comprehensive dictionary on the market for serious crossword addicts. For those of us who have to "cheat" occasionally to complete a crossword it is definitely the first book of reference to choose. I give it five stars plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best 24 Feb 2001
Format:Paperback
Of all the crossword aids available, Anne Bradford's comes out top because it has been edited by a true crossword enthusiast. It contains those obscure words that are so hard to find and makes solving a far easier task.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't be without it 23 Oct 2003
Format:Paperback
Bradfords is my Bible, and I seem to tear apart every edition that comes out. It's an absolute godsend for helping me with the really difficult general knowledge clues. My only qualification is that the pages become loose very easily, so I have to resort to sellotape. A stronger binding on the spine would be appreciated!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 7 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have Chambers crossword dictionary as well and although Chambers is a fine book I have found that in practise this leads you to the answer you are looking for more often. If you had to have one, and only one, crossword dictionary this would be it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best 30 Oct 2008
By Peter Biddlecombe TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
As and when you need to cheat at crosswords, Anne Bradford's "string and sealing wax" book (produced without a computer) still stands up very well against the ones produced mainly with the help of computers (most if not all of the rest). On a crossword discussion forum, Bradford's was recently compared with Chambers Crossword Dictionary by looking up the theme-words in the epic Listener 4000 puzzle. Bradford's had 19 of the 24 theme-words (8 each of battles, composers and coins), Chambers had just 13.
