I am amazed by this book. All the crosswords test your brain and knowledge to the edge. This is absolutely fine. However, there are so many typographical errors, English errors, even simple stuff like numbering of clues. Using the word exclaimed (twice) instead of acclaimed in crossword no 10. Crossword no 5, clue 17 gives an answer of 5 and 4 when in fact it is 4 and 4 No.11, clue number 43 referes to a painter as painters. No. 17 there is an English mistake. No. 18 there is another mistake in the clue 45, as it gives spaces of 3 6 and 4 when in fact it is 3, 5 and 4.

It goes on an on all through the book.

I am very disappointed with this product.

This is total pleasure, each crossword the perfect reward for completing a chore or resisting a fridge temptation. There are 60 crosswords and the trick is not to gobble them down too quickly: let the new knowledge settle. It's a shame that there's no one out there to appreciate my acquired familiarity with rare molluscs, chronic diseases and Celtic fishing tools. Part of the delight is in discovering how much you already DO know. Fragments that must have been stored since the age of four come floating back. Quite thrilling. The layout could be better - half the clues are not on the same page as the grid. However, the compiler is skilful at giving you something easy to start you off and then when it comes down to the last few empty spaces your knowledge purely of the mysterious workings of English orthography reveals the inevitable answer to "contained between the convex sides of two intersecting curves..."

Bought this having enjoyed recent giant crosswords published in the Telegraph, which I'd been able to complete unaided. Found the puzzles in the book very disappointing by comparison, with too many long winded clues with obscure answers such as "Latin name of the Greco-Roman god of medicine who was slain by Zeus who believed he might make all men immortal" - Aesculapius. Haven't been able to complete any without looking up half the answers. The layout is extremely awkward as other people have mentioned, and means you frequently have to flick between three pages - plus the answer page at the back. There are also several examples of the wrong number of letters being indicated eg "Fixed price menu with few, if any choices (5,6)" = Table d'hote (and what about that apostrophe?)and the 1 across clue in puzzle 10 listed as (8,8) to which the answer is clearly Margaret Thatcher but there is no space for the second name. All in all unenjoyable clues, too obscure, awkward layout and sloppy presentation. Won't be buying another edition.
