3.0 out of 5 stars Crossword Fanatic 20 Feb 2013
By Art
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This reference book is OK, but I would strongly recommend buying the full hardback edition. Quite often I have tried to look up fairly obscure words only to find that they are not in this edition. Buy the full version.
