    Incomplete

    We found this book to be incomplete. I had printed out Offical Scrabble lists of two and three letter words (J,K,X & Z only), from the internet and found many of them are not listed in this dictionary. Consequently, we raely use it.

    I give this one star.

    This is not a user friendly book. Very hard to flip back and forth.

    The authors did a lot of work in compiling this list of Scrabble

    The authors did a lot of work in compiling this list of Scrabble words, and it's just the type of list that I was needing. It
    would be better if the compilers would divide the "Main" section into linkable alphabetized sub-sections.

    links letters to fronts and backs of existing words

    it's great to find out what letters can go in front of a word! I've ejoyed this book for ten years and my copy is now in shreds. So if you are just starting or are a Scabble pro give the 'Word Building Book a try.'

    *Kicks the cloud she's on so that thunder rols and lightning flashes, but it only lasts for a second. It was meant to scare Pinkie into hiccuping.*
