Scrabble Secrets (Collins Little Books) by Collins Dictionaries
Inside the covers of this little book lie the secrets of Britain's only ever Scrabble World Champion.
Scrabble is played by millions but mastered by very few and unless you're a Scrabble player who likes to lose, this book is a must. In it Mark Nyman spells out the most useful two letter words, what to do when you have a case of irritable vowel syndrome, strategies for how to get off to a flying start and lists our language's strangest and most unbelievably useful words. Between these golden tips come anecdotes and words of wisdom from a lifetime at the top.
Beautifully produced, Collins Little Book of Scrabble (TM) Secrets is a treasure in itself and makes a perfect gift. Be careful who you give it to though; you might find yourself scrabbling around in their dust when next you play!
