Just the right amount of challenge. Puzzles can be solved in 10-15 minutes each. Moderately easy.

I am enjoying this book of crosswords - it is challenging but when one gets one of the clues that has used a clever take on a word or phrase, it generates a grin. I just discovered I share a surname with the author, one that is not common. (Other than Will Weng or Eugene Maleska I have never noticed that crossword books had 'authors'!) The NY Times puzzles are the ones of choice for me.

i do crosswords pretty regulary (ny times, mon. thru wed.) and the ones in this book are as good as any i've ever done. the clues are challenging, but not impossible, and the themes are great. Keeps you wanting more. As addictive as chocolate. So sad when it's over.
