5.0 out of 5 stars Truly outstanding work, some great brainteasing challenges
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars I groaned
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.

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.

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.
