Word is our flagship book for International Scrabble players.  Written by one of the best Scrabble players in the world, Word delves into Scrabble like you’ve never seen before.  Whether you are a new player who wants to beat your friends and family, an avid word lover who wants to know about Scrabble, an avid game player who wants to pick up the game, or an experienced Scrabble master, Word can help anyone become a better Scrabble player.

Word covers basic Scrabble concepts (such as anagramming and board vision) to more complex concepts such as leaves, fishing, setups, and endgame.  While it describes these concepts at a high level, it is written simply, at a level that anyone can understand!  This book will become a reference for any Scrabble enthusiast that they can come back to time and time again!


For those of you who want a taste, I have provided a Table of Contents as well as the first page of each chapter and a few sample pages for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
