A <I>Word</I> puzzle begins with the shared knowledge of a literate but not-so-reverent generation, and celebrates the knowingness with a deft touch. Your parents? crosswords make solvers feel smart. <I>Word</I> puzzles make solvers feel smart<I> and </I>cool, getting the references to <I>The Daily Show</I>, Mario Brothers, the Goo Goo Dolls, and a hefty dose of nostalgia (the name of the motel in <I>Psycho</I>). But they also know the core curriculum: Charlotte Bronte?s Jane, Roman generals, Berlioz and von Bismarck, Homer?and not just Homer Simpson.<BR /><BR />The puzzles are constructed with all the smarts of a daily <I>Times</I> crossword: themes, interconnected clues, titles that unlock the overall puzzle (solve all the clues and the circle letters will spell out a famous name at Hogwarts).
