I am horrible with crossword puzzles, and have always envied people that can do them and enjoy them. When I saw this book, I decided to try it and have been very please with how informative it is, and how it takes you step by step in learning the tricks to doing crossword puzzles. I have really learned a lot and am still enjoying the book. I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to do crossword puzzles.

I always wanted to do crossword puzzles, but I just couldn't get the hang of it. I was ready to throw in the towel until I saw this book. As a whole I've found Idiot's books to be not only a lot of fun but helpful as well so I decided to give myself one last chance. This good is great-- I'm learning, I'm doing, and most importantly I'm having a great time! I highly recommend this book.
