Format: Paperback
I have been doing cryptogram puzzles for quite a few years now, and there's nothing like the feeling of "breaking the code", and finding the hidden message lying within what appears to be just an unintelligible jumble of letters.

One of the things I really like about "The Great Book of Cryptograms" is that the puzzles, once solved, provide you with a meaningful, thought-provoking quote - and each "chapter" is filled with quotes from the same person (such as Aristotle & Aesop).

Because the author provides a thorough set of instructions re: how to go about solving this type of puzzle, this book is perfect for the novice and pro alike.

If you like cryptograms, or just enjoy trying to break codes, I highly recommend "The Great Book of Cryptograms" - it's one of the best I've seen.

I recently gave this book as a gift and the receiver was quite pleased....in fact, my brother-in-law spent a great deal of time each day working the puzzles as it was so enjoyable...since I was visiting I had first hand experience that week to see him pick up the book and go at it for an hour here and an hour there, while I did my own puzzle book.....he is a whiz with these kinds of puzzles, yet he found this one to be quite challenging...sure gives hours of fun and can still tax the brain....
