"Guides and manuals tend to be grim, charmless things. But not this one! If you consider SCRABBLE (and/or its digital knockoffs) a small key pillar of modern civilization--or even just an intellectually nutritious way of killing time with friends and family--why wouldn't you immediately buy a book as smart and literate and companionable as the game you love to play?"
"It's more than a dictionary or list of words to memorize. The way it's arranged by categories should make it easier to recall the words when next you play. And there are lots of surprises." -Psychology Today
"Bukszpan makes learning some of the Scrabblish basics a lot of fun." -CNET
"Bukszpan begins with a well-researched history of the origins and evolution of Scrabble and then moves on to discuss words that can be used when playing the game. While admitting that the official Scrabble dictionary is the final authority, the author provides some unusual words and their backgrounds. The illustrations are few but are quaint and antique looking, as in old pen-and-ink sketches. The book describes mutations of the game as well as records that have been set and includes useful lists, curious facts, and a Scrabblish dictionary."
