A great way to spend time on a rainy day.

I find it takes some reference material from which I've gained much knowledge.

As a long-time solver and former constructor of acrostic puzzles, I find it difficult to find acrostics that can challenge me, but these do! They are considerably more challenging than the ones Middleton does for the Simon and Schuster series. I highly recommend them to experienced solvers.

Endless hours of learning enjoyment. Full of various topics including history, science, vocabulary, etc. Answers are in the back of the book. However, I try not to use them. I find it takes some reference material from which I've gained much knowledge. I find encyclopedia, thesaurus, dictionary & the Bible the most helpful. The material is taken from the recent past rather than current events, which I find shows where we are today.

If you love crostics as much as I do, you will welcome this book of intelligent crostics. They are challenging, interesting and fun. Plus, and this is important for me, the book is spiral bound.

Format: Spiral-bound
Whether you're flying, lounging by the pool, stretched out on the couch or riding a bus, this little entertainer is right there for you.
Each puzzle is contained on a single page and the spiral binding folds back on itself to provide a firm, page-size writing surface, so you don't need a lap-table or tray. Puzzles are challenging (after all, it IS the NY Times we're talking about) but a good search engine will prove invaluable.

My husband says Middleton is the best and because Mr. Middleton is no longer with us, my husband was very happy I found this book, even though he had likely already done some of them over the past 30 years.

Middleton is pretty good, but no one compiles Crostics like Charles Duerr. Duerr's work is now out of print and selling for huge $$$ used. I don't know why Simon and Schuster doesn't reprint them, then the publisher and author could make the money instead of the resellers.
