Join the millions getting hooked on cryptics. Think of these 65 "mindfields" as combining crosswords, logic puzzles, and acrostics, with clever puns as your reward for winning. New York Times puzzle experts serve up a feast of Double Definitions (words with two meanings), Hidden Answers (words inside other words or phrases), and Homophones (clues that only sound like the answers). Add to that puzzles featuring Charades (word clues that break into syllables), Reversals (clues spelled backwards), Deletions (clues where you lop off a letter), Complex Clues (clues that combine these other tricks), and Containers (too fiendish to explain here)--and you'll know why puzzle fans who love a challenge will thank the Mensa geniuses who created them.

This is a wonderful puzzle book even for non_Mensa members like me. 65 extremely challenging puzzles. I admit I couldn't even finish one of them without cheating, but I certainly enjoyed entering into the process of this unique mind stimulation.
