3.0 out of 5 stars Collins Bradfords crossword solvers dictionary, 17 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Collins Bradford's Crossword Solver's Dictionary (Hardcover)
On the whole very good but it has a lot missing, i.e.naming countries and their capitals (capitals are shown but not to which country they relate) various anniversaries, authors, playwrights etc. various gods and religions, Greek and Roman alphabets and numbers also not shown. Personally although this book is helpful I do not find it anywhere as good as the 30 year old Crossword solver I disposed of thinking this would give as much if not more information.

I was going to get this for my Mum to replace a much loved but disintegrating Tiger Books version (out of print), after reading this i think I'll do some more research and find a better version. Thank you

I think you should look at the book at a stationers or bookshop, what I want and what your motherwants might be different, but I definitely was disappointed, as a crossword solver for me it is nowhere near as good as my old book and if I could replace my old book (at least 25 years old so would have been out of date) I would do so.

The comments about gods/goddesses, Greek, Roman and Hebrew Alphabets and months etc. are absolutely correct. I have had a real time trying to add the numbers and names of the various ELEMENTS and which should really be attached if one is a real x-word buff! Also capitals and new Countries (old re-named!).
