Bought as a gift for a relative who is an avid puzzeler and he thought it was great and different from any he had previously done.

Like All S 8 S puzzles this book is outstanding. Easy to use with the spiral binders - great quality. Keeps the mind sharp!

From other comments written on this crossword book, I had expected that it would have a medium difficulty level. However, the clues were vague and confusing. For example, if the answer contained two words, the clue did not say that. References in clues were not for the average person, in my opinion. i have been doing crosswords for many years, and was hoping to not have to struggle for the answers. Sorry, but I don't recomment this one.

I decided to go with this one because the spiral binding appealed to me, able to fold over the puzzles already done without breaking binding. Upon receiving this the spiral binding is not fully centered on the cover and the whole book seems pretty flimsy, like the whole things is just copied off someones home copier, I wasn't overly happy, but a crossword is a crossword.

this thin little book is WAY overpriced! Should have stated that it was only 50 puzzles and not 300, like the other books! I would not have ordered this book and paid $27.00 S&H --was not impressed!

I'm at the Really Tough level & for some reason thought these puzzles would fill the need--so am disappointed. Fine for someone still working up to the Medium level; they are perfectly acceptable puzzles.

Keeps the mind agile with these intermediate puzzles. Not at all too hard but still not too easy. Have fun!
