Crossword Clues

I bought a book of crossword puzzles shortly after turning in my grading and have done a number of them. This is erratically becoming a Christmas tradition, as I have worked on crosswords the last two Christmas breaks as well. The thing is - these puzzles are all clearly designed for people much older than me. Hearing some of the clues, my father suggested they were designed for people much older than him as well!

I'm not all that good at crosswords yet, and certainly can't do cryptics, but it's much easier to do a crossword puzzle which doesn't require me to know the names of actors in 1950s TV shows and the like. Do any of you have suggestions as to what crossword puzzle books might be more appropriate for me?
