Acrostic puzzles lift word game fans beyond crosswords to the next level. Just dust off your memories of great writers and philosophers, and add today's movie stars and sports heroes. Each of the 40 puzzles features three simple steps, starting with treating the clues just like crosswords. Next, you fill in the empty boxes with words that complete a quote from the book. Fortunately, you can figure out answers you don't even know from the clues provided, so the more you play, the more informed you become! Finally, you read the first letters of the answers to read the author of the quote and its source. You'll have fun, even as you learn.

I really like "Astounding Acrostic Puzzles," mostly because it challenges me and my brain. For anyone who's in need of brain exercise, this is a great book.
This is my second acrostics puzzle book and I find Ms. Brown's puzzles to be challenging but eventually doable and a great value at the price.
