But this particular book is an exception.It still retains the standards in all respects --except content.
It isn't a book of puzzles but a book of questions,most of which require no thinking or reasonable answer,but more in keeping with what one expects with a "knock Knock" joke.There are some which might be considered "Trivia" questions,but not puzzles.
Most questions will leave one without any hope of answering,no matter how much one thinks about it;then you are directed to a few clues on a different page,which are as useless as the question;then one is directed to an answer,again on a different page,which can more aptly described as ridiculous than captivating.I must admit I shuffled back and forth to the end,and was only too glad when I was finally finished with it all.
The experience was anything but captivating!!!
So,if you have been a fan of puzzles from Sloane & MacHale,Mensa,and Sterling;don't be surprised if you are disappointed with this tome.I bought this book without even thumbing through it because of previous books by these people;but had I only glanced at a few questions in the book;Iwould have passed on it.
