It is comprehensive and authoritative, so it contains all the words that should be allowed in a word game, but aren't in grandma's 1963 edition of the Concise Oxford dictionary that you keep next to Delia on the bookshelf.
Due to it's very brief format and small print, it's small and light. You can take it on holiday with you.
Because it's a dictionary with definitions rather than just a word-list, you can learn what the words mean, which is a great aid to learning.
It can be used for all word games such as Boggle, Upwords etc. not just Scrabble.
There are older editions available too, under the name OSW (Chambers Official Scrabble Words), which can sometimes be a cheaper option, but with this book selling at a reduced price like it is now, seize the moment and buy one - you won't regret it!

I have looked at several different scrabble dictionaries. In their descriptions, Collins have made it extremely difficult for scrabble players to know which scrabble dictionary to buy.
I like to have a book with as many words as are allowed, and to have brief meanings of the words. This book does both.
Because of the muddle of scrabble dictionaries published, I would urge you to check the ISB number, because the covers and the descriptions alone might lead you to buy the wrong book.
# ISBN-13: 978-0-00-721359-7
So I would very much recommend this book, which I am very very happy with.
