Format: Paperback
Bob's Bible took the competitive Scrabble world by storm. Within a few short months of its initial publication it graced the shelves of most of the nation's top Scrabble players. It is formatted to include hooks and anagrams for each entry, which is essential information for the competitive Scrabble player. All words are sanctioned for use in club and tournament play and it is the same word source used by many online word games, such as Literati and WordOx. Of the dozens of word books and dictionaries I own and use for various word games, Bob's Bible has proven to be the most useful and valuable. I love it!

This book gives you all the words in the Official Word List,
saving you the need to buy a copy unless you're using it to
judge challenges in club games and someone objects to the
extra information: front and back hooks, and anagrams, for
every word listed. It's great fun to browse for such lovely
anagram pairs as SNAKEBIT BEATNIKS, OILIEST IOLITES, and my
current favorite, ONANISM MANSION -- and you might just retain
a new word or two. If you play in NSA tournaments, you need
this book, period.

Format: Paperback
Bob's Bible is a perfect resource for improving play. It offers useful lists to extricate a player from tight spots (i.e. the vowelless rack or vowel-heavy rack). It lists both the short and 6-8 letter JQXZ words. Plus, every entry includes the front and back hooks as well as the anagrams of that word which allows the player to see how that word will fit into play or how his opponent might hook onto that word during play. This book has broadened my potential and energized my game. I feel I've found the secret formula for successful play!

Great book for the serious Scrabble player. It takes a bit of practice learning the format and navigating through the book, but once that is mastered, it's a great resource for learning and adding Scrabble words to one's vocabulary.
