    Great reference for avid Scrabble players - a few questionable pages.

    I gave this book as a gift to my sister-in-law who plays Scrabble with her mom. I didn't look at the entire book but it looked to be an great inspiriation for new words to play. Apparently I didn't look at the book close enough because when my mother opened the book she opened right to the page listing words of a sexual nature. Then she turned the page and was confronted with a list of medications for sexual disfunction that are allowed in playing Scrabble. My mother asked her what kind of Scrabble she played. Are there not enough other words in the English language that you can't win at Scrabble unless you have a few sex oreinted words up your sleeve? That is my only gripe. Otherwise it was an interesting book and resource.
