Fifty-one original puzzles include complex crosswords, a collection of amusing stories with a series of clues that lead to a single solution at the end, and an advanced series of math and logic puzzles — no skills beyond high school algebra needed. Most puzzles include hints; solutions are provided for all.

Synopsis:

Author and puzzle columnist Barry Clarke challenges conundrum lovers at varying levels of expertise to solve problems posed in 51 different puzzles. Included are word puzzles, complex crosswords, math and logic puzzles, progressing in the level of challenge from moderate to most difficult. A moderate amount of effort and imagination will solve riddles in "Popular Puzzles, " while "Teaser Tales" take the form of entertaining stories in which all clues must be solved in order to arrive at a single solution. "Advanced Puzzles" are designed to stretch the mind of puzzle geniuses who enjoy a real mental test. Many problems have hints and solutions, and the most difficult require no greater knowledge than high school algebra.
