Review:

Sure, it's a great feeling of accomplishment to finish a crossword puzzle without help, but sometimes the clues are so abstruse that even the most brilliant polymath is left scratching her head in bewilderment. For those times, you'll want to keep Random House Webster's Crossword Puzzle Dictionary at your elbow. Now in its third edition and completely revised by Nancy Schuster, the former editor in chief of the Dell Champion crossword-puzzle books, this dictionary offers a plethora of facts from a broad spectrum of disciplines, from natural sciences and history to literature and the arts. One of the nicest features of this dictionary is the inclusion of new words and popular culture. For instance, along with finding all the books of the Old and New Testament, you can also find out who directed The Bicycle Thief (Vittorio De Sica), where Michael Jackson was born (Gary, Indiana), and who wrote Mildred Pierce (James M. Cain). Although created for those of us who love the challenge of a good crossword puzzle, Random House Webster's Crossword Puzzle Dictionary will also provide hours of browsing enjoyment for word lovers and trivia buffs, as well.
