In ordinary usage Collins or an Oxford dictionary will serve equally well, but Chambers has some sterling qualities to recommend it besides the crossword-specific: it is compact, pithy and quick to search. This edition is surprisingly slim, owing to lightweight paper which is just opaque enough, and the print is admirably clear. The binding appears to be of the perfect variety, meaning that there is no sewing to keep the book together if the glue fails, and that is a disappointment. To be fair, though, it's well done and the book opens quite flat. Otherwise, nothing to complain of. A fine general purpose dictionary, and essential for crossword solvers.
