One of its greatest features is that all the capitols are located together, as well as the rivers.
Who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1934? Turn to page 776, and all the Nobel Prize winners are listed.
It doesn't matter what you are looking for, movies, sports, actors, foreign names. Its all there, and real easy to find.
I am not much of a TV watcher, and I was pleasantly surprised to find so many entries on TV personalities and the shows. I have been able to finish many more puzzles, as a result of having this book.
Having this dictionary handy, when I get stumped, is almost like having you the author next to me, giving me the answers. A truly great Crossword dictionary.
Die-hard puzzlers will come to value _The Million Word Crossword Dictionary_. I'm not a die-hard puzzler, but I can appreciate the hard work that has gone into it. Comprehensive doesn't cover the amount of content in this 1268 page dictionary. Although the print is small, it is set up in an easy to read manner. The book offers words for single and double words. It includes typical words as well as celebrities, artists, authors, chemists, noblest, slang, popular phrases, movie titles, etc. Moreover, if you don't find what you are looking for, you can contact the authors through the snail mail or email addresses included in the book.
It also includes popular movies and songs, actors, and other famous people, winners of awards, ex. nobel prize winners. It is definitely the best of its kind around. It isn't perfect, but it's pretty close. I gave this to my father-in-law for a birthday gift, as he is also into crosswords and he loved it too.
If you are looking for a crossword dictionary that will really help, this is the one.
This dictionary has factual, up-to-date info for puzzle solvers, trivia buffs, or anyone else interested in advancing their knowledge of Movies, Geography, the Arts, Music, Sports and hundreds of other topics.
I have worked crosswords for many years and many times have been frustrated by the lack of needed info on a number of topics. To the rescue, the Million Word Dictionary has been the answer to all my frustration.
I highly recommend the addition of this reference to your library.
In short, you will still prefer to make first use of smaller, more conventient Xword dictionaries but this is a boon to serious solvers.
