|I received this book on time and in perfect condition. It is a fine little book as far as it goes. However, at the same time that I bought this book, I also bought THE MILLION WORD CROSSWORD DICTIONARY, which is the best, bar none, crosswored puzzle solving aid I have ever used. I tend to use all my other crossword books secondary to it.|

|I don't think this edition is as easy to find subjects in as the original.|
It doesn't have as many difficult to find words. I'de prefer my old version of 20 yrs ago if my dog had not eaten it.
