Best Crossword Puzzle Dictionary Ever Published! 14 July 1999
By Ecomp@prodigy.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have a thumb indexed hardcover version that I just happened upon at a Navy Exchange Store in California. When I bought it, I had no idea how much I'd use it. It has gone with me around the world on several different aircraft carriers, and has been used by me and my shipmates as we whiled away the hours at sea. Since then the book has gone out of print, and that is a tradgedy! This book has to be the best of its kind. It's not as easy to use as some of the newer crossword dictionaries, but once you learn HOW to use it, there's nothing that even comes close to it in content. And it comes in handy as a regular dictionary when you come across a word or foreign phrase in a book are article that isn't in your standard dictionary. I've found information in this tome that I couldn't find anywhere else. If you love to read and/or do crosswords, this book is indispensible. My edition is still in fair shape, but I'd love to see a revised edition. What was Doubleday thinking when they stopped the presses?

Best Crossword Puzzle Dictionary...EVER 30 Mar 1998
By Ecomp@prodigy.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Along with F. Forsyth in CA., my edition of The Master Crossword Puzzle Dictionary by Herbert M. Baus is getting old and USED! No other crossword puzzle dictionary even comes close to this monumental work. I would like to have a NEW and Revised edition, but I'll take whatever I can get. I'll even take two!

The best of all the crossword references 15 Jan 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is a shame that Baus' book is no longer in print, as my copy is about to disintegrate. After trying just about all of the other such books, this one is still my favorite and I consider it to be head and shoulders above the competition.
