This is a readable and richly entertaining guide to speaking the language and upping your game.

PACKED WITH INFORMATION: The text is written in a clever way that delivers ANSWERS and [clues] as you read along. Packed with trivia, sidebar-rich chapters cover groups of clues on subjects like food, travel, music, movies, and more.

FOR BEGINNERS, EXPERTS, AND WORD NERDS ALIKE: Beginners will find it a boon to their solving skills; veteran crossworders will learn more about the vocabulary they employ every morning; even folks more interested in language than puzzles will find plenty to say AHA about.

DIP IN AND OUT: Structured for easy use, with spotlights on common and cryptic crosswordese from Latin terms to coffee words, sports lingo to Simpsons characters, and phrases like DOH [Homeric interjection?] and OOF [Gut reaction?].
