The Puzzles for Progress Book Now Exists!

It's finally here. I'm so excited.

My new puzzle book, Best of Puzzles for Progress, is officially for sale at! If you haven't preordered it (or if your preorder was cancelled by Barnes and Noble), now is the time to order it for real! All profits will go to anti-malaria charity Nothing But Nets.

If you know anyone who you think would enjoy Puzzles for Progress, definitely point them to this book–it's designed to be a great entry point! It could also be a holiday gift.

Here's a real photo of the front and back covers!

As you can see, the book contains 42 hand-crafted logic and word puzzles curated from Puzzles for Progress, including 6 brand-new puzzles never before seen. They span a wide variety of puzzle types (from crosswords to sudoku to Capsules to Spirals), and a range of difficulties, from easy to hard. There is also a bit of bonus content.

Just for fun, here's the Table of Contents:

Oh, and if you do get the book, don't hesitate to tell me your thoughts! If you find any errors, let me know so I can correct them for people ordering the book in the future; if you enjoyed the book, I'd love to hear that as well.

I won't go on too long, but I'd be immensely grateful if you bought the book for $11.99 plus shipping at! I legitimately think you'll really enjoy it. Thanks for your support, and stay tuned for the three regularly scheduled puzzles this Friday.


It's not identical, but I put a similar post about the book on my blog Chromatic Conflux – if you subscribe there too, you're not getting deja vu!

[Edit: Barnes and Noble website says it's "Temporarily Out of Stock Online," which is fun. It shouldn't be saying that, but in the meantime you can't order the book. I might try to get the book on Amazon or something so I don't have to deal with additional shenanigans of capricious Barnes and Noble.]

[Edit 2: Back online, mere hours after I sent Barnes and Noble the email! That's about five to seven business days earlier than I expected.]

PS: On Barnes and Noble, the website I'm using, you get free shipping for orders over $35 in the United States. I'm not saying you should buy three copies and give two out as gifts, but you would get free shipping...

PPS: If you know me personally, you can also just buy a book from me in person; if you do this, you also get free shipping, and Nothing But Nets gets an increased share of the money. Whichever's more convenient for you!

PPPS: If you'd prefer a pdf version of the book, email me.
