I bought this as a replacement gift for my husband as the previous one was just worn out being used on a daily basis. A very useful book for crossword addicts. "Indespensible"

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Frank Fielding on 2 Mar. 2009
The latest purchase was the third of the crossword dictionary and I have been disappointed, not with the content which is fine, but in the quality of book which started to disintegrate very quickly. Such a book needs to be more durable. I have remembered to date this one and if it again falls apart I shall ask for a replacement.

My Mothers previous Crossword dictionary had literally fallen to pieces after many years of hard work!
Searched for this one, which seemed to be the closest match to her old one and sent it directly to her address.
Mum thrilled with it..not least because it arrived 24 hours after I had purchased it on line. Sent with amazing speed! Both of us surprised but impressed!

This is a very useful book, easy to use giving straightforward definitions as well as alternative words. There is also a very useful general information section at the front, for example it list the US states, world wide curreny, dates of wars and so on. I have purchsased this copy as a replacement, as my other has fallen to bits through constant use.

This book is excellent for helping you solve those tricky clues. It's well organised and contains lots of interesting info, lists etc. I have purchased two copies of this book, as when my mother saw my copy she decided to 'borrow' it!

This book was bought as a replacement for a munted copy of the same book purchased about 12 years back. It has been used so much that it fell to bits. It is a superb dictionary aid for crosswords
