A unique guide for solving the cryptic crossword written by Simon Martin 'Enigma' of the Daily Telegraph.

Have you ever been put off by the numerous lengthy tomes on ‘How to Solve the Cryptic Crossword?’, then this straightforward 14-page guide, ideal for both beginners and as a prompt for more seasoned solvers, is for you. Ideal for commuters and travellers alike whether by train, plane or ship.

Perhaps surprisingly, there are really only 8 main types of cryptic clues; however, things become much more interesting and difficult if 2 or more of the clueing techniques are put together in 1 clue : more about that later! First, each clue should contain a definition/indicator and an answer; it is being able to identify these two component parts that is the key to solving the cryptic clue.

The chapters included in this guide are:

Additions and Deletions
Camouflaging (hidden words)
Cryptic (double definitions etc)
Homonyms (homophones, puns)
Reversals (across and down)
Round-and-About (containers)
Multiple-clueing (combinations)
Other tricks of the compilers
Meanings and phrases
