Each of the steps is logical, but they can often be subtle or require an "aha!" type insight. Try everything! The hallmark of a THP is that, when you get the final answer, you'll know it. There won't be two or three possibilities to choose from -- quite often, through the letter and word manipulations required, the final answer will literally be spelled out for you. And, quite often, discoveries that you make during one phase of the puzzle will help you in another phase.]
