Book Review

This book is arranged into 366 daily doses of wordplay, designed to last you through the year. The problem is that it's too easy to get addicted and read ahead of your daily allowance! Espy is among the most creative and wittiest writers to play with the English language. This volume is the best material distilled from two almanacs by this author; one reader recalled his memories of "sitting in bed with the flu and reading through both books in three days, giggling and chortling and slack-jawed with amazement the whole time." The book covers everything from acronyms, anagrams, puns, and puzzles to univocalic writing, acrostics, palindromes, and pangrams. You will not be disappointed.
