Nearly four hundred brain-jogging puzzles give you a crash course in cryptography, while the messages reward you with the comedy of Jay Leno, Elayne Boosler, and Jerry Seinfeld, as well as the wit and wisdom of Hillary Clinton, Stephen King, and Edna St. Vincent Millay. Begin by trying to find the clues through trial and error, or follow the tips for faster results. There's a chart of hints for each puzzle that reveals one crucial letter equivalent. Along the way, you'll probably agree with puzzle number 83: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain unless you've used up all the other applicable four-letter words."--W. C. Fields.

This book was really very cheap....and in such good condition....I spend hours working them and it sure does challenge the brain...what I like about this book is that it gives a hint at the start of each one and that is so very helpful....a fun book and sure I will be ordering more when this one is done....
this was the second book i ordered for my husband (who is a" stink" to buy for,) he doesn't like anything digital, so finding game books for him can be a real chore, thank goodness there is a good selection on amazon. con; would have been happy to give it a 5 star but same problem as before it takes a little too long to get it delivered
Common sense is apparently in short supply about some things. There's hardly any room to write in this book. I did the first puzzle and had a hard time fitting all the letters into the small space allowed. For me, the space between lines is adequate but the letters and words are too close together.
This seems to be a common problem with cryptogram books and it takes so much away from what should be a relaxing hobby.
