Scrabble has a reputation: a casual game with friends and family, and a game of word-finding, vocabulary, and social interaction. And while these are important elements of Scrabble, there is so much more. Scrabble is a strategic game, requiring clever play-finding and advanced tactics.

Words of Wisdom is the first Scrabble book that analyzes advanced play for tournament Scrabble players. It explains a myriad of sophisticated techniques and strategies, in a way that anyone can understand. Whether you want to be a top player or you just want to understand Scrabble’s complexities, this is the book for you!

This book reveals Scrabble secrets hidden from the playing public, until now. This is Scrabble analyzed in a way that you have never dreamed. This is Scrabble at the highest level. This is Words of Wisdom.


For those of you who want a taste, I have provided a Table of Contents, as well as the first page of each chapter as well as a free chapter for your viewing pleasure.  You can also read the first ~20 pages for free at Amazon.  Enjoy!
