This little book is filled with puzzles that are not just for Mensa members. I do crossword puzzles because I grew up on them and enjoy them. But, I had medical problems that resulted in a diminution of my cognitive abilities, particularly word recognition and recall. Doing increasingly more difficult crossword puzzles for the last three years has resulted in a noticeable positive effect.

Unfortunately, most of the crossword magazines I find on the store shelves are not very good and they are expensive for what you get. This book is just what I was looking for and I hope it is the start of a series of books.
These take me much longer than 10 minutes, but these puzzles are still fun! The book is small (slightly difficult to hold) but the paper quality is nice. The themed clues are entertaining, but each puzzle has ~5 celebrity answers, which is more than I like.
good as expected
I bought this calendar because a co-worker and I LOVE the crosswords on the Mensa Deskpad Calendar. We are in no way calendar enthusiasts or Mensa members, but enjoy a bit of a challenge. Some of these are great, but others are difficult to get into. I'm going to stick with the pad ones for next year.
this is a wonderful collection of crosswords that are clever and don't have a lot of actors,actresses, directors, tv shows and movie answers. Thank goodness.
lets go baby
A little challenging, but just about right. Easy to use size.
I like a challenge for crosswords. Although I haven't finished a puzzle in 10 minutes, it offers a nice balance of good puzzles.
This book was used and cost me practically nothing, but it looked as if it were brand new. I will be checking this seller's books again when I need more crossword puzzle books.
