This is the best crossword dictionary that my husband has ever used, in fact, this is the third copy we have bought. The first two were paperback and fell to bits from constant use. I decided to buy a hardback copy so it would last longer.

I love doing crossword puzzles, especially the NY Times Sunday puzzle. I've bought many crossword puzzle dictionaries over the years. The best one, by far, has been The New Comprehensive A-Z Crossword Dictionary. It has the most entries and the most choices per entry. The only thing I don't like about it is the soft cover edition. The binding doesn't last long. I've had to purchase three already. Barnes and Noble (the store) doesn't display the hard cover edition. This time, through Amazon.com, I'm purchasing the hard cover, hoping I'll have better luck with it.

The A - Z Crossword Puzzle Dictionary is the best source for people who love to do crossword puzzles. It is easy to use, it is complete and it puts all other crossword puzzle dictionaries to shame :)

Exactly what my mom was looking for. She had a paperback of this book and wore it completely out. We'd been trying to replace it with various crossword dictionaries over the years, none of which were satisfactory. Finally, I got her to find one page with the title of the book on it, she did, I found it on Amazon.com, and ordered it in hardback, and wow -- is she pleased! Thank you for providing it exactly as pictured, and oh so timely!

It was a replacement for a 10 year old book and was exactly what I expected and wanted. Timing and price very good
