One Man’s Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, From Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life

From a New York Times review by Judith Newman of the book by A.J. Jacobs titled “The Puzzler: One Man’s Quest to Solve the Most Baffling Puzzles Ever, From Crosswords to Jigsaws to the Meaning of Life”:

Two months before I graduated from college, I stopped going to class and started doing crossword puzzles. I wasn’t very good. But one thing I knew: I was better at doing crossword puzzles than I was at doing life. I had no particular goals, no idea how to find a job or a place to live or someone who would love me.
