I don't seem to have a good place to shelve this one. I refuse to create a "games" shelf for just one book! This is an interesting ramble through the history of Scrabble and the corporate follies behind its ownership. You will be amazed and probably slightly worried about the lengths competitive players will go to for this game. I enjoyed the author's lively and (mostly) unabashed account of his own Scrabble obsession.
