Easy as Pie Crosswords: Really, Really Easy!: 72 Relaxing Puzzles by Stanley Newman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have always admired people who do crossword puzzles on newspaper as a pastime; unlike word searches in which your mission is to find right words and circle them, crosswords require your cognitive abilities to conjure up right words, plus a mastery of the English language, including knowledge of idioms and certain expressions endemic in the English speaking countries. 84 more words
