Book Description

10 July 2013
  • More than 1/3 million answer words
  • Easiest to use
  • Easiest on the eyes

Here is the work that made all other puzzle dictionaries obsolete. Its unique Instant Finder System saves you time-consuming searches through the long, jumbled paragraphs of words that are so common in other crossword puzzle dictionaries. Suppose your clue is a six-letter word for RAGE: just turn to that entry and your eye immediately picks out the bold number 6. Now you can pick your answer from just five words, ignoring the 32 others that can't fit.

And note how the clear type and uncluttered format help make your search quicker and easier!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one I tried. 3 Sep 1999
By A Customer
I got interested in crossword puzzles a year ago. Bought all the books. This is the best helper I tried. In the beginning I relied on it constantly. Now, I find that, through it, I have learned and can go it alone most of the time (which means Monday-Thursday and often on Sunday for those of you who do the NYT).

We bougth the fifth editon back in 1986. The pages are worn thin, and have separated from the spine but we can't be without it.The BEST book of its kind available to ardent crossworders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in its genre! 11 Jan 1997
By A Customer
I have not found a crossword puzzle dictionary which compares.
The words included are highly relevant and they are
nicely organized into logical categories and subcategories.
Even the Swanfeldt dictionary
doesn't guarantee success with the NY Times crossword puzzle,
but it will give you a fighting chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super 19 May 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great little book. It is the third one we have had. They fall apart with so much use and my mother at 87 swears it is the best one she has ever had.
