Format: Paperback
This is a brilliant little book that can be used for party games or just to while away the time if you enjoy puzzles. It has something for everyone and apart from the entertainment value I have also found some of the puzzles to be quite educational. What is most fascinating is that although many of the puzzles seem to be impossible to solve there is always an answer. A little gem and an ideal fun gift.

HASH(0x8bac187c) out of 5 stars Lots of oldies, but still a good collection 22 Dec. 2003
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of puzzles designed to be solved quickly using only thought. While it is true that for some it may help to construct a diagram or write options down, for most the answer is just a matter of using the right approach. Most of the puzzles are not new, I recognized over fifty percent as having appeared elsewhere. Examples of such puzzles are:
1) If you are in a boat and throw something overboard which immediately sinks, does the boat rise or fall?
2) When in the last 200 years has there been a year that reads the same upside down?
3) A woman has five children and half of them are boys. How is this possible?
4) There are several problems where matches are to be moved.
5) The problem of a three-cornered duel where the odds of each hitting their target are different and the poorest shot shoots first.
6) How to arrange five circular coins so that they all touch each other.
7) If everybody in a family always votes Republican, then how come one person did not last election?
Nevertheless, I read through it with interest, even when I was only checking my memory rather than my wits. Solutions to all puzzles are in the back and there are some real sneaky ones. It is a good book for the beginning puzzle solver, although veterans may not be impressed.

HASH(0x8bac1aa4) out of 5 stars I just love lateral thinking 24 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One day my Language Arts teacher said that we would try something fun today. Yeah right I thought, but he read us some lateral thinking puzzles, and I just loved trying to figure them out. I bought this book and read every one, some were hard, and some I could figure out after thinking for about 5 minutes. It is a perfect thing for boredom, and is just fun and interesting. A man was born before his father, killed his mother, and married his sister, and was perfectly normal. What was going on?

Format: Paperback
This is a great book full of many categories to stretch your mind, including math, science, and story problems. Many of the questions can be played in a group, like 20 questions. Then you also have to arrange things like pencils and coins certain ways. This book is a great introduction to lateral thinking puzzles!
HASH(0x8bac3114) out of 5 stars A FUN New Way to Stretch Your Imagination and Discover New Ways of Looking at What Appears to be a Simple Statement. 13 Mar. 2015
By I'd rather be at the Beach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After doing Lateral Thinking Puzzles, you will never take anything for granted again! It is SO FUN to really think of all the different ways a simple statement can be construed…and still be wrong! LOL! An example from the book: A woman is furious because her husband said he would be home at 8:00, and he arrived at 8:02. It sounds like she is over-reacting, doesn't it, but nothing is as it seems, and you will learn to see everything in a new way. I LOVED IT! I highly recommend it!
