SUKANYA ROY, NSB CHAMPION, 2011

It covers the entire spectrum of languages and provided a great foundation for me to venture into the depths of the dictionary – there were literally thousands of words that I knew from reading it, which I wouldn’t have known otherwise.

MIRA DEDHIA, 3RD PLACE FINISHER IN THE 2017 NSB

My goal ever since I was eliminated last year was to come back and make it to the top ten and be in the finals on ESPN on Thursday evening...The reason I wanted to write to you was to thank you. Your book Words of Wisdom was so essential and invaluable in my learning....Your book was so comprehensive and dense. It was definitely hard to tackle it, but once I had learned the majority of the contents, I felt well prepared for the bee. I would say about 60-80% of the words asked in the finals were from your book, including words I received like beisa, Aubusson, spiegeleisen, and euphroe. I wouldn’t have been able to spell many of these words without the help of your book. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the rest of the spelling bee community. It helped me accomplish my goals, and I have no doubt that it will continue to do the same for future spellers. Thank you, Mira
