5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift for Crossword Solvers and Constructors, October 24, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Crossword Proper Name Finder (Paperback)
A huge amount of clues in puzzles today are made from proper names. The problem for most solvers is how to find them. Unless you are blessed with total recall, you need this book. The name may suggest that this book contains only the names of celebrities. In fact, this book contains the proper names of awards, books, movies -- even rivers! Each carefully categorized to make it easy to use. For puzzles constructors, this book offers you an alternative to the usual dictionaries and thesaurus' that are so often used in construction. You'll quickly and easily find new and interesting clues that will keep your fans coming back for more. This a must-have book for anyone who loves crosswords and other pencil puzzles.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book lives up to its name, August 4, 2001
This review is from: Crossword Proper Name Finder (Paperback)
I've used this book heavily since I've bought it, and it has come through with the correct answer 95% of the time. If you do crosswords, this book is a MUST BUY. It is already one of the top reference books in my collection for doing crosswords. Fred Jackson

This review is from: Crossword Proper Name Finder (Paperback)
Somewhere I read a review that said this was the crossword book one was most likely to use. I scoffed at that, as I have some robust crossword answer books, but do you know, that review may have been right? (Bit of info--I've solved all the NY Times daily crosswords for the past 15 years or so.) BTW--This also has an add-on section listing rivers and what river flows into what other rivers, as well as persons and info re them (Ringo Starr was in a Caveman movie, had a hit song, and his birth name), as well as "products", which are movies, songs, etc., with the person they are associated with. Note--the stuff after the "BTW" is just extra to the name listing, as the name listing is the key to this, but the extras are nice too. I hope someone is updating this, since it's about 6 years old and thus knows nothing about "Lindsay Lohan", etc.
