Having used the earlier Chambers Crossword Dictionary for a few years, I decided to purchase this more comprehensive version, renamed and extended as a Crossword Companion, as soon as I saw it advertised. The book is logically arranged and it is generally easy to find what one is looking for - if it exists - even a book of this size can't contain everything you may want, but it is fairly comprehensive! As a bonus, there is a short section at the front of the book on crossword solving which many, particularly newcomers, may find useful particularly in getting started on cryptic crosswords. The book is of a similar quality and style to the companion volumes, the Chambers Dictionary and Chambers Thesaurus which also sit on my bookshelf and are constant reference points. Highly recommended.

I thought this would have at least as much content as the older version, but it lacks the odd/even words in that version. It may have more detail in the main body (e.g. more names ofartists and their dates and country), but it is all more confusing for that.

The first attempt to deliver this book promptly went astray and the packaging was destroyed by our local donkeys, and the book itself badly damaged. However on hearing this another book was dispatched immediately, and arrived in perfect condition. A brilliat service and a very good crossword companion
