    Comments about The New Comprehensive A-Z Crossword Dictionary:

    I have had 3 copies of this book as I have worn them out. I have also added many new answers to my copy so you can imagine how long it takes me to transfer them to the new copy. This is the most informative crossword dictionary that I have come across.

      I would have rated it five star except that after about five years of daily use it tends to fall to bits.This is my third book and the fact that I replace it with the same speaks volumes.
