4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun! 22 Jan. 2014
Format:Paperback
There doesn't seem to be any combination of letters that aren't covered. When you are down to your last 1 to 3 letters, or just think you are stuck on a round, this little gem of a book will get you unstuck or out.
Use with caution if you don't wish to be a social outcast at the scrabble table!

5.0 out of 5 stars All of a sudden, SCRABBLE makes perfect sense! 20 Jun. 2015
By Philip
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent little book with tremendous value and is very suited to anyone who plays SCRABBLE. Whether you are completely new to the game or a seasoned SCRABBLE player, Barry Grossman has written this book very well to make playing SCRABBLE a lot more interesting and a lot more competitive than you have ever imagined. Now all my family are eager to learn.

Grossman, a champion of Channel 4's Countdown, has written all 101 tips very concisely and it's only a matter of a minute to absorb all the information. The first tip encourages you to think positive! From then on, it all gets very interesting. It explains how to use every letter of the alphabet effectively, what to do if you have a nasty rack or a closed board and all those bonus plays. You'll be yielding 50-point bonuses for using all 7 tiles in your rack before you know... that is, if you know all the seven, eight and nine letter words.

Word power is extremely vital, so if you don't already have a wordlist or dictionary, all the key words are listed including the all-important anagrams, ones containing any of the four power tiles (J, Q, X and Z) and those handy prefixes and suffixes. It even provides concise definitions to some of the most bizzare words known to the human world. It's interesting to know that there are playable words from all over the world and that there are some spelling variants to some words. FIQH looks very unusual and that initially would make no sense to be, but apparently it's an Islamic jurisprudence. WAQF is an Islamic charity. Let's also not forget the Welsh word CWM, a Welsh valley. Very interesting indeed!

In addition, the book concludes with a list of 124 two-letter words and 1310 three-letter words. They're all key to making parallel moves, so learn them!

A very well-written little book and extremely useful and inspiring. I'd recommend it to every SCRABBLE player.
