The author, Ian Walker, contends that anyone with average intelligence could solve a cryptic crossword and aims to get the reader familiarised with the mysteries of cryptic jargon and the basic principles of cryptic solving, even the complete beginner! The contents of the book include compiler's tools and abbreviations; a whole section - a training session, as it were, comprising 500 questions - to familiarise the newcomer with cryptic language and reasoning; 21 crossword puzzles with guiding hints; and an entire fact - finding section.

Ian D. Walker has been doing cryptic crosswords since his childhood in England. Having never had assistance with the intricacies of solving these puzzles, he felt that he could make it easier for others by teaching them his methods. He has been a crossword compiler for many years and believes that 'quick crosswords' will never hold the same enjoyment once this craft has been mastered. Ian is an engineer by trade and lives in Port Elizabeth.
