New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 1, 2008
Crossword addicts are always in search of a new and better tool to boost their solving skills--and the answer's not yet another dictionary. "The Crossword Puzzler's Handbook: 1000 People, Places, and Things You Need to Know to Solve Crossword Puzzles!" is something a lot more valuable: a comprehensive compilation of "cross weirds."
These are the words we don't often hear in general conversation, but they do tend to pop up in crosswords frequently, either because they use the most common letters of the alphabet or are featured in some of the most popular subjects. So it's fantastically helpful when you need to figure out who starred in that 1933 film or name an island in the Central Philippines.
Organized by subject, this collection is broken down into three sections: People, Places, and Things. You'll find invaluable clue-solvers in such categories as Abstract Ideas; Actors and Actresses; Adjectives; Bodies of Water; Cities and Towns; Folklore; Foreign Words; Health, Medical Care, and Sickness; Music; Transportation; and many, many more.
You can either use this as a reference when an answer's on the tip of your tongue (but you just can't get it), or as a handy study guide. The sturdy reinforced binding will keep it in great shape for years of service--and the small size makes it perfect to take anywhere.
And it's recommended by Will Shortz, the editor of the New York Times crossword puzzles and the king of the crossword world!
It's available online and at bricks-and-mortar stores now.
Buy it now for yourself and for the cruciverbalists in your life.
And it makes a great gift, so remember "The Crossword Puzzler's Handbook: 1000 People, Places, and Things You Need to Know to Solve Crossword Puzzles!" when the holidays come around.
