This review is from: Futoshiki: 200 Puzzles (Paperback)
I didn't really like the way it has been laid out - moving back and forward from 5 to 6 to 7 to 8 column puzzles. Not sure I'll buy any more of these.

I like the puzzles. But the layout and binding of the book make it difficult to work on the inner puzzles

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent novella set at the time when the "troubles" broke out in Northern Ireland in the late 1960s. Although the target readership is mainly young people, the book helps to introduce any reader to the social, political and religious pressures in which many young people have been growing in Northern Ireland. It is the first of a trilogy, and the entire trilogy had previously been produced in one volume, but it seems that version is no longer available. I passed on my copy of the 3-book set to a friend and I was obliged to buy this book to introduce the trilogy to another good friend. Although not detracting in any way from the content or style, it is somewhat ironical that the author does not come from Northern Ireland. Perhaps that gave her the perspective to view things afresh, and find elements of simplicity in a highly complex context.

2.0 out of 5 stars it's nice to have a guide through the best of them, 9 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are numerous invaluable tips in this book, and it helps to flag some of the more interesting TED talks. Now that there are so many of them, it's nice to have a guide through the best of them. Useful information and tips on improving skills for public speaking and keeping your audience. However, I was stopped in my tracks by a highly insensitive and politically incorrect reference to someone's learning experience in Zambia "teaching the local natives how to grow tomatoes" (p.94). I would bet that not one of the TED speakers would ever use - or be permitted to use - such language in any of their TED talks. I was so incensed by this inappropriate language that I took the unprecedented (for me) step and wrote to the author, Carmine Gallo at his communications and consulting empire - and, guess what, I'm still waiting for an acknowledgement or response.
