Every week, a million and a half people tune in to National Public Radio's Weekend Edition Sunday to hear Will Shortz, The Puzzlemaster, present his on-air puzzles and weekly challenges. Now braille readers can challenge themselves and their friends in book form! Two hundred of Will's best word puzzles from NPR are waiting for you to solve - with answers provided in the back of the book in case you get stumped.

These puzzles include:

  • plays on words (to "have the money for an American car" is to "afford a Ford")
  • - homophones (words that sound the same but are spelled differently like "coward" and "cowered")
  • - rhymes and false rhymes ("not as good a nag" is a "worse horse")
  • - some very bad puns
  • ...and many other kinds of word tricks and language oddities that are sure to entertain - and stump - even the best wordsmiths.
Will Shortz is the crossword editor of The New York Times and former editor-in-chief of Games Magazine. He has been NPR'S Puzzlemaster since 1987.
