Relatively easy American-style cryptic crossword book by a variety of authors. A 2-page introduction provides instructions, and there are two small (7x7) practice puzzles with clue types labeled and answered explained. I enjoy it, but experts might find it too easy. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806901861, Spiral-bound)

Ready for something that really tests your brainpower? These puzzles--taken from the celebrated pages of The New Yorker magazine--offer more challenges per "empty square" than the average crossword! Every cryptic has a twist, a little something extra, a double-dose of difficulty. That's because the clues all have two parts: a definition half and a wordplay half, with anagrams, reversals, containers, and lots of other word games built in.
