From the Inside Flap:

The Official Scrabbler Brand Word-Finder is designed with one thing in mind: scoring big points. The method is simple--present as many playable words as possible, in one place, for easy reference during a game. Over 60,000 high-scoring words are arranged alphabetically by first letter and by inside letters, providing the widest array of possible word variations. This innovative format allows Scrabbler fanatics to consider hundreds of potential plays with one quick glance. The Word-Finder is also a one-of-a-kind resource for the obscure words sometimes necessary to get you out of a pinch--like when you're stuck with a "z" and an "h" and time is running out ("hazard": 19 points).

In this straightforward format, standard suggestions are listed in regular type, high-scoring words (worth 10 to 14 points) are listed in bold face, and extra high-scoring words (worth 15 points or more) are marked with an asterisk. A quick scan of the word suggestions invariably leads to a variety of possible plays. A handy dictionary of prefixes, suffixes and plurals provides ideas for adding even more points to your score, and "Ten Tips for a Better Game" addresses winning Scrabbler strategies. The Official Scrabbler Brand Word-Finder features a complete list of every accepted two-letter and three-letter word, and there's even a Quick Check Usage Guide listing all the acceptable words in special categories like "Animal" and "Medical" that aren't always included in standard dictionaries--no more confusion as to whether an "apteryx" is, in fact, an animal (it is: 19 points), or what the acceptable term is for someone who has received a vaccine (a "vaccinee": 15 points).

The Official Scrabbler Brand Word-Finder reflects changes to the last three editions of The Official Scrabbler Dictionary, and is updated with the most current additions to the Scrabbler lexicon with fun new words like "yo" and "ab." Whether you're new to the game or a seasoned pro, the Word-Finder is an indispensable tool for becoming a more successful player.

From the Back Cover:

This all-new second edition of The Official Scrabble ® Brand Word-Finder is unique in its organization of officially accepted words, allowing the player to find the highest-scoring word in the shortest time. It reflects additions and deletions from the last three editions of The Official Scrabble ® Dictionary, and includes a complete list of two-letter words and three-letter words formed from two-letter words, as well as an invaluable and completely new section, "Ten Tips for a Better Game." There are even newly minted words, such as ab, yo, and ed, and a directory of prefixes, suffixes, and plurals. The Official Scrabble ® Brand Word-Finder is faster than a dictionary and will help you become a Scrabble champion. Scrabble ® is a trademark of Hasbro in the United States and Canada. ©2001 Hasbro.
