Book Description

17 Sep 1992
Logic is not enough. Edward de Bono coined the phrase "lateral thinking" to describe a process of thinking that is different from normal, vertical or forward thinking. Here are nearly a hundred mind-benders, from easy to fiendishly hard, that make you think laterally in order to explain the set of circumstances surrounding a seemingly inexplicable situation. 96 pages, 18 b/w illus., 5 3/8 x 8 1/4.

I've always been interested in lateral thinking, so when I picked up this book, I was looking forward to something that would really get my brain exercised. And this book did it. For anyone into lateral thinking, this is a great book. It contains some classic puzzles and some outstanding original work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 11 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some old, most new, some are not quite logical, some are fascinating facts, and lots just really clever. There are three sections - the questions, the clues and the answers. The clues are good as it gives you help with thinking them through, giving you more of a chance to work it out. I'm enjoying them on my own, but could be a group game - in the right company.

2.0 out of 5 stars I groaned 6 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Part of the cover blurb states 'and will groan when the "obvious answer" is revealed' - I groaned! Some of the solutions are ridiculous. However, there are a small number of clever puzzles within the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars for a night out 25 July 2005
This is a great book for a quick drink after work with a bunch of colleagues. The puzzles range from quite easy (still rewarding if you "get " them) to really difficult and impossible to answer without Q&A. Don't look too pleased with yourself when you read out the puzzles.
