    You have no idea how badly I needed this

    Bob Klahn is known, probably indisputably, as the best crossword cluer in the business, and of course he can make his puzzles as hard as he wants.

    There comes a time in every crossword solver's life when easy puzzles just don't cut it anymore, and you desperately search for harder and harder stuff, totally fresh clues, and something which actually grows your dendrites, rather than just puts them in alpha fodder mode.

    This is it.

    The two particularly strong assets of this book are:
    1) A 100% FRESH cluing system. If you are often tired of seeing the same cutesy clues for the same words, boy will you be happy now!
    2) The highest incidence of DROP DEAD head slapping clues per puzzle.

    I would have been happy with merely the collection of Bob's old Sunday Crosynergy puzzles. I got way more than I expected! Expect about 50+ hours of fun (and wrath) from this 8 dollar investment.

    Popeye
