I've enjoyed Trip Payne's crosswords in other collections, but these are disappointing. What makes a puzzle tough is the clues, and there's not much challenge in these. The puzzles are also quite small.

For experienced solvers who really want a mental workout, I recommend Peter Gordon's Fireball series.

I bought this book at a thrift store for $2 after seeing Trip Payne in the documentary "Word Play." I work puzzles almost every day, the harder the better. The Brainbusters and Identical Twins puzzles in this book are some of the most challenging I've ever attempted; the Brainbusters are on a par with the Saturday puzzles from the New York Times. I can't imagine why the webpage on Amazon says these puzzles are for ages 9 - 12, but maybe 9-year-olds are not what they used to be. Anyway, these puzzles are lots of fun, and I'm going to be sorry when I complete all of them.
