Thank you for this book. It was a gift for my mom. The paper was of lighter weight but relatively thick pages. My 80 year old mom can at least lift it because of this. The references were easy to figure out for me who has never used this type of book before. Mom likes it....which is REALLY saying something!!!! Trust me... She would have said she didn't like it if she didn't.

This is what I have found to be the best crossword puzzle dictionary. It costs a bit more, but you must be careful. It may give you too many answers if you prefer "working" your puzzles. Tony Schneider

Very comprehensive, if a little difficult to read. They've packed alot of puzzle clues into this book. So far, I've encountered only a few clues for which I could not find answers, but that just increases the challenge, right? After buying other puzzle dictionaries over the years, I must say this is the best one I have found. Have a good reading lamp nearby because the print is small with four columns per page.

Very tedious to use. Like waiting for paint to dry. Slow! Slow! Slow!

I was surprised that some clues were not answered, given how many words were in this huge volume. In several cases I did not find an answer here but did findit in the ABC crossword dictionary. I did like the way the answers were organized.

My husband makes a copy of the Houston Chronicle crossword puzzle every day and we do the puzzle together. At seventy one we need all the help we can get and if we don't know the answer Million Word does!

Trying to find words is so frustrating because there is no search function. You spend all of your time trying to estimate where the word might be found.

Easy to use and covers the words well. I recommend this book. I purchased one before I found this and it was the worst ever so I really appreciate finding this book.

This book is the best crossword dictionary I have every purchased. I only wish it had not had a Paperback cover for this is quite a large and heavy volume. My volume has split  into two pieces.  I paid in   $30 - $33 range when I purchased it. In fact even with the cost of the Hardcover edition I wonder if that would stand up any better with continued usage. This book  is almost the sole one I use  looking for answers. Most  of what I had  before were very old editions (circa 1995,etc).

This is a book, not an app. Do not buy unless you want to flip thru over 6,000 pages looking up a word. The built in search feature does not work properly. This is a waste of money.

This crossword dictionary in the eBook format is a disappointment to me. I can't figure out how to get it to work right when searching for a word clue. It could just be my ineptness with my Nook, but it seems that this eBook should be easier to use.

Using this book in paaper form might be good but not on a nook. Too hard to search for a word and the results are sometimes questionsble.
