Offering this book for about $50 is a ripoff! It is not available to the general public. Members of the National Scrabble Association can buy it for about $15!

just like the others said, order this for $14.95 (plus S&H) from the National Scrabble Association. no point in paying $40 or $50 for it from here.

Format: Paperback
This book is simply a list of all the words. For less than $15, it makes more sense to buy a book that has the lists plus helpful hints, such as lists of hooks and anagrams. Try either SCRABBLE Wordbook or Bob's Bible: Words, Anagrams and Hooks. The Wordbook does leave out disparaging words so it can be used by school children.

Both books have tons of lists made especially for tournament Scrabble players. Bob's Bible actually has all of the 2-8 letter words like the OCTWL, but with the front and back one letter hooks printed to the right and left of each word and any anagrams right below the word you are looking up. Both books have short lists of the important words like Q without U and and words with too many vowels or too many consonants. They also have comprehensive lists of the words by the number of letters in the word. The OCTWL has only the one long list of all the words.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I LOVE my online Scrabble. Needed a book that would help me with combinations of letters. This was the most highly recommended TWL dictionary on Amazon.

Like any dictionary, it only really helps if you know the first few letters of the word. Ex: I'm trying to find any word that has both an X and a Z... Can't do it with this book. Using software doesn't help because you have to exit the game on an IPad to go to the software. The book should have a section of "Words Containing...".

Too much money for a book I rarely use.
