Celebrating the 100-year anniversary, professional crossword constructor and editor Ben Tausig explores the colourful and unusual upbringing of this most addictive game, including 100 challenging puzzles from all different time periods. He also uncovers: The evolution of the crossword puzzles' shape; how basic expected knowledge has changed through the years; and the notorious qbreakfast table ruleq and the puzzles that break it.
