Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Kevin McCann & Mark Diehl's The 21st Century Crossword Puzzle Dictionary

“Finally, a crossword dictionary written for-and by-crossword lovers. Comprehensive and thoughtfully arranged, The 21st Century Crossword Puzzle Dictionary is an invaluable puzzle aid for experts and newbies alike.” —Ken Jennings, Jeopardy! champion and author of Brainiac 

“More than any other crossword dictionary I can think of, The 21st Century Crossword Puzzle Dictionary focuses on exactly the right questions: what words are really being used in today's crosswords, and what clues are really being used for them? It's up-to-date and comprehensive without including all sorts of words unlikely to really appear in crosswords-and using red ink to emphasize the most-used answers is a simple but brilliant idea.” —Trip Payne, three-time American Crossword Puzzle Tournament champion

“A comprehensive and impressively organized volume that will render all your old crossword dictionaries obsolete.” —Tyler Hinman, four-time American Crossword Puzzle Tournament champion

“There are already excellent crossword reference tools available, but The 21st Century Crossword Puzzle Dictionary takes it to a new level. Solvers now have an extensive, useful, contemporary aid derived from crosswords themselves.” —Ellen Ripstein, 2001 American Crossword Puzzle Tournament champion
