It's my fault for ordering it, had I noticed the size of the book I would have realized the print would be tiny.

This is the fourth time I've gotten this particular book.....this last one I got for a friend.

I am now in the process of wearing out my third copy of Webster's Crossword Dictionary. If you do the New York Times puzzle or the Atlantic Monthly or the Harper's puzzles, you'll find this dictionary the most helpful, particularly useful when you are only interested in possibilities of a certain number of letters.

The May 1997 edition book is the best refernce that I had available to me. It has gotten so worn in 20 years time that I had to look for another edition. ---- and I found it----- at Amazon.com

The content is excellent. My husband has the second edition by the same author and has worn it to a frazzle and I was hoping to throw that one away when this one arrived but since it is not as easy to read because of the size of the print and the size of the book (pockekbook size whereas the last one was 6x9)I think that is not going to happen! I had searched every bookstore for this book but did not find it so I was pleased to find it on Amazon.com. He has numerous other books but none of them satisfy his need as much as this one. So therefore, I am disappointed with the book. He will go back to the old one. Would you like to see an old delapidated book sitting on your table all the time? No, No.

The USPS service was very slow but of course it was at Christmas time. Thanks for the opportunity to comment.

The only reason I keep buying this crossword puzzle dictionary is because I wear out the previous ones I have bought. I highly recommend this book for crossword puzzles.

It is a new copy, but the spine is starting to break already and that's why I needed a new one in the first place. The entries are fine -- like my old one.

Ordered: Merriam-Webster Crossword Puzzle Dictionary, Second Edition, as was shown on the ad, used.
Received: The item shown on this comment request. Different format, not as useful. Not worth time and effort to return. Would try again, but skeptical about the outcome. The other used ones were very cheap and may not be better than the one we have had for a dozen years, is very beat up, but better than the one we bought.

I enjoy using this book while doing crossword puzzles because it is most complete. I have used this book for years and have yet to find one better. My first edition has woren out and I am using my second edition and have just purchased another for my friend who is only beginning to do crosswords. If there is one better I would be most interested in it.
