5.0 out of 5 stars can't be done while brain is farting... Nov. 24 1998
By A Customer
If you like puzzles but you can't stand those complicated New York Times crossword puzzles that only my dad can descipher, then pick up this book and treat yourself to something different. Use your intuition and the math-oriented parts of your brain (which are closely related) to figure out the sayings and who said them. Have fun. If you don't like them, just go back to the New York Times and send me the answers. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Cryptogram Book April 9 2006
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been doing the cryptograms in this book on & off for quite a while now. I tend to go from one type of puzzle to another - enjoying each type for a month or two, and then moving on to something else. For the last several months, I have been engrossed with Sudoku puzzles (a numbers/logic puzzle), and have only recently moved back to doing cryptograms again...

So, I got out all of my cryptogram books, dusted them off, and jumped right into the fun of decoding again (smile). I had forgotten just how much fun (and sometimes frustrating) cryptograms can be!

"Cryptogram-A-Day Book" is filled with puzzles that, when solved, reveal an interesting quotation, as well as the person known for creating it. It's arranged by date - with one puzzle for each day of the year. It appears that the author's intention was that us cryptogram-lovers would do just 1 of these puzzles per day... However, for me, I just dig right in, and do as many as my spirit moves me to do.

The only reason I gave this book 4 starts instead of 5 is because there are no hints in the back - all you get is the full solution. And, if you're anything like me, your eyes wander and you wind up seeing more of the answer than you wanted. I've become accustomed to the books that offer you 1 or 2 different hints that you can use if you become stuck, before having to go to the full solution.

Overall, I think this is a good cryptogram book, and I really like the fact that many of the solutions are quotes that are inspiring, or lead one to ponder. So, if you enjoy cryptograms, I recommend you give this book a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good Dec 26 2004
By Crystal C. Loh - Published on Amazon.com
I've been a fan of cryptograms since I stumbled across them in my local newspaper - this book is a great collection and a good way to occupy your time and mind whenever you're bored or just feel the need to solve something! I really liked it because the cryptograms are for the most part lovely quotes by many famous people - you'll be treasuring the quotes long after you've solved the puzzle. The only thing about this book is that - the title isn't true - once you buy it you won't be able to limit yourself to just one cryptogram a day, that's for sure! Definitely a great catch and one to look into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many features make this one of best cryptogram books I've ever had Jan. 1 2009
By Janet E. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
The cryptic quotes in this book are interesting and challenging enough to make them fun. I did one a day throughout the year and was sorry when the last one was finished. But I'm not tossing the book. I am keeping it as a reference, and, via the comprehensive index, I can look up a quote from a favorite author or find a profound statement on a certain subject. I especially appreciated that the answers to the quotes were not in sequential order so that when checking my solutions, I did not see the answer for the next day. Moll doesn't supply hints, but I would not look at them if she did. Hints weaken the challenge. I really dislike cryptograms that furnish the hint right below the puzzle.

I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys cryptograms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted! Jan. 27 2009
By K. Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wanted a Cryptogram book because sometimes the puzzle in the daily paper isn't enough! This book fits the bill. There is plenty of room above the letters for writing in your guesses. The quotes are long enough that you can find clues within the letter patterns. I love the way the answers are given in the back, spread out in such a way that you can't accidentally see the next day's puzzle. I highly recommend this one.

By K. Mastrogiacomo - Published on Amazon.com
I have been doing cryptoquotes for awhile now and this book was great! I am someone who does not like any hints. I keep going until I get it! I recommend this book to anyone who is an avid "cryptoquoter"
