New York Times Crossword Puzzle Dictionary
on August 25, 2000
I admit to a bias, since one of the authors was my dad, now deceased. He worked on this for many years, and it is indespensible for word game and puzzle lovers of all types. Even using it to solve disputes in Scrabble is of great help.
The organization is very "user-friendly" with name places, geographical sites, etc. highlighted. It is probably the most comprehensive (more entries)book of its type.
It truly makes a wonderful gift for word game and word puzzle lovers. They will keep it right by their favorite game table or reading chair.
