Praise for Crossword Forge:

"We use crossword puzzles in the Head First series as exercises to help reinforce the concepts learned in each chapter. Without Crossword Forge we'd have to create them all by hand. There are usually 10-12 crosswords in each Head First book, so this program saves us countless hours of work. Not only that, but it's fun to use, and works really well. Thank you!"
Elisabeth Freeman -- Co-director and co-author of O'Reilly Books' Head First Series.

"Unlike less sophisticated products, Crossword Forge enabled me to create puzzles that were entertaining and instructive, all at once--and at a level that young adults did not feel patronized them."
Robin Carson -- Crossword Forge User (Instructor of Latin and English Literature)

"I love your software because i am a French teacher and I can use it in class. Bravo for one of the best softwares I have seen in a long time!"
Francine Shirvani -- Crossword Forge User

"What a great product, thank you very much."
Graham Brunskill -- Crossword Forge User
