    Best built Crypto-book I've ever used

    From a physical construction standpoint, this is the very best Cryptogram book I've done so far, much better than the other five or six I've finished. From the superb paper stock, which takes a pencil quite well, to the excellent spiral binding that makes both page-turning and page-holding easy, it's a joy to use. Also the typographical choices are good: A pleasing font, in workable size and with clean spacing. This is how all crypto-books should be done.

    In terms of content, the quotes are interesting and sometimes quite amusing, though they are at times a bit quirky and odd. Some are the author's personal musings, rather than "Famous Quotes". Myself, I prefer quotes more inspiring than comical. I think the best ones are those that would be worth one's time to paint on a wall or frame in a calligraphic poster. Many in this book don't meet that test. But they are fun and they are challenging, which is, after all, the point of a cryptogram book. I recommend this book highly.

    Great Find..

    Great fun. Cryptogram books are hard to find, so it was a great find.
    I bought 2 one for my 81 year old Aunt and one for myself. We both enjoying them.
