Publisher Comments:

The response to our Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Puzzle Book #1 was so overwhelming it demanded an encore performance. So we sent our premiere puzzlemaker Stephanie Spadaccini and her team of top puzzle constructors back to the Bathroom Reader archives to seek out more tantalizing trivia to craft into more popular puzzles for aficionados everywhere. As Hollywood knows, sequels are challenging, but we have managed a second act that is, if anything, even better than our first. Here again are the most popular types of puzzles--word searches, crosswords, criss-crosses, anagrams, cryptograms, double-crostics, and brain-teasers--along with cryptolists, trivia quizzes, palindromes, and more. Every puzzle is ranked according to degree of difficulty and every one is fun.

People have always enjoyed solving puzzles and the number of puzzlers is growing by leaps and bounds. So sharpen your pencil and settle in for a satisfying session of mental aerobics.
