Stanley Newman is a fantastic crossword puzzle editor. His puzzles are a challenge but not impossible to solve. I love his Sunday puzzles. There is nothing better than a hot mug of English Breakfast Tea and a Newman Sunday crossword puzzle.

I really enjoyed working these crossword puzzles. The perfect level of difficulty. Not too hard and definitely, not too easy.

I bought this AARP book because the first AARP crossword books claimed a crossword quality free from celebrities and other modern trivia and that a dictionary or other reference did cite each entry. But this AARP book is the exact opposite. Forty-four of its 50 crosswords are full of allegedly modern trendy trivia and items of a special, rare, novel or unusual quality; obscure, non-existent words and clumsy, and even incorrect, clues. Many are totally antiquated, actually never used today, the result of hasty Google-powered construction with little regard for accuracy and quality in general. Only six puzzles out of 50 are of acceptable quality.

In most of the book’s crosswords the majority of the clues are some sort of irrelevant or incoherent pun or wordplay sentences, some ridiculously lengthy, while the small number of straight clues do not enable one even to start figuring out such meaningless sentences. Quite a lot of entries try to replicate not only everyday colloquial language, but urban slang, with some entries not even found in the Urban Dictionary, but they must exist in the creator’s mind! While the majority of the clues are pointless, many hinting at some character on a TV show, movie, play, novel, sports team, etc., and their relatives or even their exes, it is the plethora of clumsily made-up, meaningless sentences that destine this book for the wastebasket.

I was worried after I ordered this, since most reviews I've read on here criticize Stanley Newman's daily puzzles as being too easy. My paper carries his Sunday ones, and I always enjoyed them since they seemed aimed at a younger crowd. I'm in my mid-20s, and it's nice to see crossword puzzles with Star Wars trivia and references to songs that aren't from the 1950s.

I'm generally pleased with this book. The only criticism I'd offer is that some of the puzzles are missing cryptic clues -- I'm used to the Sunday crosswords having a few long brain-teaser phrases related to that week's theme. Some of the early puzzles in this book are missing them, perhaps because they're supposed to start easy. Still, there are many tricky shorter clues that are challenging.

All in all, I'd recommend this.
