5.0 out of 5 stars A celebration of the crossword, 14 Nov. 2013
By 
This review is from: The Centenary of the Crossword: The Story of the World's Most Popular Puzzle (Hardcover)
After reading John Halpern's enthusiastic and entertaining celebration of the crossword, who wouldn't want to be part of this community? The book is well-researched, well-balanced and well-written, with honesty and great humour. It's informative and educational, and provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of, and insight into, this fascinating world and some of its personalities. Along with plenty of clear, useful advice on both solving and compiling, he includes an eclectic mix of puzzles for us to have a go at. There are all sorts of delightful tit-bits and anecdotes, and he winds up with some brilliant, hilarious anagrams on the acknowledgements page.
