This puzzle book has not been as much fun as previous books. I am not sure why but I have not enjoyed it as much as I did the first puzzle books edited by Will Shortz. I won't give up though and will very soon be buying a new puzzle book.

I wish I could solve all of life's problems as easily as I solve at least half of the Crossword puzzles in this book. However, I am stumped by the Friday Saturday ( difficult ones), as I am stumped by thr mess humanity is in.

Unlike the futility of raging at this imperfect world, solving the puzzles helps me fall asleep at night.

If you are addicted to the NYT crossword puzzle, like I am, and one a day is just not enough, buy this book. The puzzles are from Monday-Saturday (you'll need a different book for the Sunday puzzles) and although they don't tell you which day the puzzle came from, you'll know once you start solving it. There are 4 puzzles per page, so if I'm going away, I usually tear out a few pages and take them with me. I usually go through crossword puzzle books quite quickly, but I've been working on this one for several months now!
