Funny Cryptogramsby Shawn Kennedy
More than four hundered brain-jogging puzzles give you a crash course in cryptography, while the messages reward you with the comedy of Jay Leno, Elayne Boosler, and Jerry Seinfeld, as well as the wit and wisdom of Hillary Clinton, Stephen King, and Edna St. Vincent Millay. Begin by trying to find the clues through trial and error, or follow the tips for faster results. There's a chart of hints for each puzzle that reveals one crucial letter equivalent. Along the way, you'll probably agree with puzzle number 83: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain unless you've used up all the other applicable four-letter words."--W. C. Fields.

i enjoyed the book but found the letters to be quite small and close together, making it difficult to complete. if you like the large print, this book is not for you.
As someone who is probably at an intermediate level at cryptogram solving I found this book quite a bit of fun. Cryptograms get easier with practice and my skills are improving! The quotes are funny as well as interesting and there is a wide variety of sources. I look forward to more puzzle books from Shawn Kennedy.
