5.0 out of 5 stars Great for puzzlers 14 Jan 2000
By Mary K. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have used this dictionary for over 25 years and have worn out my copy. It is well organized, easy to research, and has the answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An update, please..... 16 Jan 2005
By Reader B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mine is almost worn to shreds. I find it extremely useful, and the three and four letter word finders easier to use than most. I agree that the name finder needs a serious update, but since many crossword puzzles use the same clues, I have many penciled in names in that section. This dictionary is one of two I use, the other being the New American which sometimes has a more extensive listing under animal, herb, flower and star clues and a complimentary category listing. Now, if they only would come out with a dictionary that would have more foreign word definitions and also latin sayings, it would be perfect.

By Carolyn Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love this dictionary and use it all the time. But it should be updated to now. The names in the NAME FINDER ARE OUT DATED, plus all the other sections are too. Please let me know if you plan on doing this.
