Pocket Posh CrosswordsPocket Posh Crosswords is a small sized book - about 4" x 6" - with a built in rubber-band style place holder. It's meant for each carry in a purse or pocket, and has 75 puzzles in it to keep you entertained. With all the research showing how much puzzles can keep your mind alert, you could almost say this style of book can help keep you healthy!
The small book size means when you are trying to press open a pair of pages - the clues are on the left, the puzzle on the right - it's a bit hard. The book is "thick" so the pages bow out and don't lay flat. You end up snapping the spine. Which I suppose in the grand scheme of things doesn't really matter. The book is one-use. You go through and solve the puzzles, then recycle the paper. Still, I'd have love to have seen this spiral bound so that when you're working on a given puzzle you can lay it completely flat or heck even wrap the clues around to the back. That way you glance at the back side, see the clue, and then write it on the front side.
There's a good blend of clues in here to really test your knowledge. They range from old movies to new TV shows, politics, geography, history, obscure words and much more. There's a complete list of solutions in the back so you don't get *too* stuck on something.
Definitely a great idea for crossword puzzle fans. If only they could do spiral (or SOME other type of binding) I'd give it five stars.
