As an aficionado of the New York Times Crosswords and a voracious crossword solver I anxiously awaited delivery of this book. Included you will find the easiest of the Times crosswords but in a somewhat hard to write in book due to the design. Since it is in paperback format and you cannot lay it flat you will have to hold it open to complete each puzzle. I much prefer the format of the Simon and Schuster crossword series and Maura Jacobson's books since they have a spiral binding.
The crosswords are interesting and will give you many hours of fun solving.

For me, over 50, these puzzles were harder than the daily Wed. NY Times puzzles today. I think it is because these are older puzzles and the contemporary references are from the 60's or so. It was edited by Maleska, who was the puzzles editor before the current Will Shortz. They are challenging though....good luck.

Devotees of the New York Times daily and Sunday Crossword Puzzles have finally gotten what they'd been asking for for an eternity! The daily NYT puzzles become more challenging as the week unfolds. Mondays start you off gently as you wish the week would start you off, but by Saturday, it's not uncommon to stare at the puzzle forever until inspiration strikes. For those anxious to build their skills and improve their knack, the Times has published puzzle books appropriate to each day of the week. Don't be embarrassed to start with Monday. Both the puzzles and your week will probably get more difficult as they move along.

I have tried different sets of crosswords and finally found that the Tuesday NY Times puzzle is the perfect level for me when I want a puzzle that is quite do-able but still clever and fun. This collection was given to me as a gift and I have found it to be the perfect travelling companion.

Speaking as one who can usually get up to Wednesdays's NY Times puzzle before feeling inept; these Monday 'easy' puzzles would be totally demoralizing to the novice puzzler.

this is a brain worker. I thought it would be more like the NYT monday crosswords that are edited by Will Shortz. more along the lines of a wed or thurs instead. I'll give it to my mom.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The puzzles in this book were created by Maleska a well-known creator of puzzles who died quite a while ago. They are harder than today's Thursday puzzles. They contain more obscure words and refer to much older movies and events than today's puzzles. I relish today's puzzles on Thursday but for older puzzles Wednesday is more my speed.

I think these puzzles are too hard for the user interested in easier "monday" puzzles.
