I bought this to replace the 1982 version I had, which I have used almost every day since I got it, but which is now literally disintegrating, (despite my efforts with the Selotape over the years,) as it has been used so regularly. The new version is of course even better, with more comprehensive lists and also some new categories. I am very much enjoying finding my way around this new book and discovering the new features it contains. I have always regarded my original purchase as one of the best book buys I have ever made. It contains such a wealth of easily accessible information, which I have used during the process setting Trivia Quiz questions, as well as for the more usual everyday crossword solving purpose. I am sure that this new book will more than compensate for the demise of my old 'friend'.

I am really pleased with this book, originally I was just looking for a thesaurus and came across this on my search. What a lucky find! Not just for crosswords this is an excellent source of info...listings from Nobel winners to Kings and Queens. I will now be ordering more copies for friends and family!

I had a copy of this book that I bought 20yrs ago and it was falling to pieces. I bought this hoping it would have been updated and indeed it has. I use it for helping to solve crosswords but it goes much further than that and, when I was setting a quiz for a family quiz this Christmas I was able to use it to find the answers! Very very useful

Something essential for the holidays
I love my crosswords - both cryptic and general knowledge.
I adore my Spanish holidays - but still love my crosswords.
This is a great help. No need for loads of books - everything that I need is here.
Recommended to everyone with similar intrests

My wife regularly uses the paperback version of this book and I wondered whether a Kindle version would be more convenient when in our touring caravan. I loaded it onto an old Kindle and also onto a Kindle Paperwhite so that I could learn how to use it. As you might expect there are no instructions and it helps if you already know how the contents are organised. Using it on a plain old Kindle was pretty difficult, but once you have worked out how to do it the Paperwhite loaded one works very well indeed.

Bought this - really looking forward to out-shining my wife at crosswords. Unfortunately, weeks later, I still have not fathomed how to use the Kindle version.

I bought this book to replace an older Book of Lists by the same author which has served me very well but has become outdated. The Lists part of this new book is absolutely fine and I'm sure will be very useful. However, be advised that the Solver section, which takes up approx half the considerable thickness of the book, is just an alphabetical list of words arranged by increasing length. This is probably the least useful format for actual crossword solving – I already have other Solvers which highlight various other letters apart from the first one in each word – this more closely reflects the real situation you find in solving a crossword. I suspect I'll hardly ever use the second half of this book.
