Format: Paperback
This volume collects 365 New York Times crossword puzzles originally printed between 2000 and 2004. While the series is not in chronological order, it does follow the normal Monday to Saturday progression of difficulty. Daily grids and clues each squeeze onto one 6" x 9" page and Sunday puzzles span two pages. Be forewarned that most of these puzzles have appeared in recent NYT crossword calendars and other reprint collections. The small pages are bound like a paperback novel so the user must awkwardly hold the book open while solving.
While this is perhaps the only NYT volume that features both daily and Sunday puzzles, I'd recommend any number of other excellent NYT collections instead of this one. I prefer the page-a-day calendar for its better portability, the `Black and White' book for its better aesthetics or any of the larger collections for their page size.

I was glad puzzle 1 was a bit too easy, because I had 365 to go! But then puzzle 2 was really hard, and something was screwy about puzzle three. Reading other reviews, it looks like the whole book isn't easy-to-hard, rather the easy to hard cycle repeats every 7 or so puzzles. It would have been nice if there was a forward to explain that formatting quirk. I guess it's well known to New York Times aficionados, but not at all evident looking at the book (just the opposite). Will's great on the radio - what's the point of having him edit the book if he's not going to write a forward? Yesterday, I was about ready to chuck it, but now I know to just do all the "Monday" puzzles first - the ones after the two-pagers. I'm looking forward to building my skills that way. In a few months, maybe even puzzle 3 will make sense!

This collection of 365 crossword puzzles (one for each day) is just OK. The puzzles are not all that challenging if you are into such puzzles.

I love doing the NYT crosswords especially now they have put so many online. But there is something special about doing them on paper. Great collection for just that.
