Unlike crosswords of just a few years ago, today's crosswords, as exemplified by those in The New York Times, are filled with lively words and phrases that can't be found in a standard dictionary or any other single reference source - until now. The Crossword Answer Book is the first-ever puzzler's reference based on actual crossword answers. Multi-word phrases, abbreviations, famous people from all fields, place names, fictional characters, brand names, and more - all get "equal time" for the first time in this book.
