Review:

Lovers of the English language will find themselves entranced…
This will quickly prove itself to be an essential reference book, and one that demands to be browsed regularly.
- Yorkshire Evening Post

This book is perfect for you! To be honest I got this book for my Dad who is an avid crossword fan. He often tortures himself with cryptic puzzles and this book will provide lots of reference points for him. It is not cheating, honest!
-Quote from Amazon customer

This is a very deluxe Dictionary that is superbly set out on high quality paper. All the words are nicely spaced and easy to track, plus the definitions are spot on. This is the dictionary to grace any study, library or office and is of particular value to any writers. A good reference for children too.
