AUTHOR

About this book: These puzzles are designed to intrigue and delight both serious and casual word puzzlers. The questions typically ask for an English word or words. The word answers given are the best solutions we can find in either the British Chambers dictionary or the American Webster's Third International dictionary. The anagrams often involve famous people, places or incidents.

You can work through the book on your own but you might enjoy it even more if you play it as a quiz or game with a group of smart people who think they know a lot about words!

There are over 300 new puzzles which will delight word lovers, puzzle fans and curious minds. There are palindromes, anagrams, letter combinations and a vast assortment of word puzzles. These are challenging if you like solving tricky questions but the book is also fun to dip into in order to learn about remarkable words in the English language. Here are some sample puzzles:
