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! Collins Little Book of Scrabble(TM) Secrets is endorsed by Mattel.
