The first type of puzzle is fun, but the second type is my favorite because you usually have to do these in your head. I like to keep one or two in mind for occasions like being stuck in traffic or standing in line. They really make the time fly and you don't need pencil and paper. I find they are also great if you have trouble getting to sleep. Concentrating on a tricky word puzzle or arithmetic calculation sure keeps your mind from wandering all over the place.
And don't look for clever tricks with these puzzles. One thing about Will Shortz is that even though he loves puzzles, he is scrupulously fair. He gives you all the information you will need to solve each problem.
I am not a cross word puzzle person, but I love these puzzles. I don't write on the pages, but write my answers on a separate paper in case I want to use the puzzles with a group. It's fun to do them with others. I've taken them on family vacations, solving them at the beach or sitting around the kitchen table. The books also make challenging, interesting and unusual gifts.

More writing in It than I had hoped for. I intended it as a gift!!!Published 18 months ago by Christine Bekiares
Disappointing lack of variety, not all that exciting to work the same kind of puzzle over & over again. More mind-numbing than mind-bending.Published on February 10, 2014 by S. L. OREILLY
I think it's always good to keep your mind challenged. This book is perfect for that.Published on August 26, 2008 by Jerlyn M. Thomas
I like the variety of puzzles in this book...as opposed to all crossword,etc. One has to figure out the rule before solving the puzzle.Published on March 28, 2007 by BL
