Crossword puzzle solving aids Jun 11, 2008
I received this book on time and in perfect condition. It is a fine little book as far as it goes. However, at the same time that I bought this book, I also bought THE MILLION WORD CROSSWORD DICTIONARY, which is the best, bar none, crosswored puzzle solving aid I have ever used. I tend to use all my other crossword books secondary to it.

I don't think this edition is as easy to find subjects in as the original. It doesn't have as many difficult to find words. I'de prefer my old version of 20 yrs ago if my dog had not eaten it.

This little Crossword Dictionary by Dell is the best little book for me. I keep it in easy reach. It has helped me learn quite a few words that were unfamiliar to me and gives me a wide vocabulary in my everyday conversations with people.
I thank Dell for a wonderful addition to my library.
