Most anything I look for is not in there.

Being an avid crossword puzzle fan, I have a lot of puzzle dictionaries. The description sounded like this one would be a "must have" addition. I have been so very disappointed. Most anything I look for is not in there. The very best continues to be "The New Comprehensive A-Z Crossword Dictionary". Happy puzzling WITHOUT this one - you'll waste your money.

Format: Paperback
As a crossword solver for almost sixty years I find the Random House Crossword Dictionary vey useful in particular as a resource pertaining to questions about popular culture such as the cast of an old TV show or movie. This is not available in the NY Times Crossword Dictionary for example. The Random House Dictionary also contains lists of characters in well-known novels. In short it is a valuable reference for a crossword fan and in particuloar for those who work puzzles at the expert level.

This is, beyond a doubt, THE most authoritative reference guide for crosswords...Evah! According to the Random House Puzzle Meter, we do "Medium" level puzzles (no easy feat, this) and this book is a tremendous help for those of us who function as mediums. We even remember half the stuff we look up! OK. Maybe a quarter because we keep going back for more...
We've tried other references and really, nothing compares.

Not only are a great many words included, but they are nicely organized and the large print makes it very easy to use.

Replaces a 15 year old version of the same name.
Unlike many newer versions of a product, this one is better than the previous.
We use it on a daily basis.

Both have their merits. The Webster's print is larger and it seems to go more in depth on some topics. The Million dictionary has a lot more entries but sometime there very little information - you'll find "Smith" John and that is it.

Format: Paperback
I bought this based on the reviews of others. It's not particularly helpful and it is physically huge! It is an interesting reference book, but not very helful for solving crossword puzzles. Buy something else (I know I will).

This is easy to use and read. The larger size makes it a bit difficult to have in your lap, but otherwise this is going to be a wonderful addition to puzzle lovers.
