    If you enjoy filling in crossword puzzles, you will be glad you have this book as a reference. As the title says, there are a million words in this volume, and possible responses to a clue are listed by the number of letters in the response to aid in a search. The print is large enough for easy reading, and the learning curve for usage is short, if not minimal.

  • Positive revue

    A great dictionary for anyone that does crosswords. A wealth of information. Can get answers to a lot of tough questions. Well worth the money. I got the Paperback version, I fold the paper so I just have the puzzle in front of me and use the dictionary as a pad , then I can just lay puzzle on chair arm & look up answer when I am stumped ,which is too often . All in all very satisfied.
