A great book for those of you who are preparing for a puzzle competition and are looking for an exercise book (as I was when I bought this one). Despite it is only 96 pages, it has a great variety of puzzles, mostly contest types.

There are around 10 to 20 puzzles of each type, and these are:

- Alternate corners
- Battleships (classic, crowded, hexagonal, minesweeper, numerical, ocean view, semicircular)
- Corral
- Deja Vu
- Dominoes (domino hunt)
- Eminent domain
- End View (like ABCD)
- Fences (including big field fences and pentomino fences)
- Hex Loops
- Lighthouses
- Minesweeper
- Number place
- Nurikabe
- Oxtails
- Clouds
- Skyscrapers (only the 'number of buildings' type)
- Snaky tiles
- Spiral galaxies
- Spokes
- Square Roots
- Tents

The level of difficulty is pretty good, at least for the puzzles I tried.
The only drawback is that most of the puzzles are too small, especially the Fences. I've seen books where the puzzles on the answer pages are bigger than these ones. It's not like they are so small that makes it impossible to work them out, but still pretty small. What I'm doing on other books and will on that one too is to scan the puzzles, cut the white spaces and print them back again on larger sheets. This way you are not ruining your book when drawing and erasing and you can print (and solve) certain pages as many times as you like.

Highly recommended.

If you love puzzles, this book is a **must have**! This is hands down the best puzzle book I have ever worked. There is a wide variety of puzzles and they are all unique, not your standard logic problems. Prepare to be challenged, these puzzles are definitely for the puzzle solver at heart! What a great mental workout!

I can think of two groups who would really enjoy this book. First, if you are a brainteaser fan. This book is nothing but one brainteaser after another. There are about 20 different puzzles, with 400 puzzles in total. The other group who would benefit from this book are those preparing for Mensa competitions. These are the same type of puzzles used in Mensa competitions. I should say, however, that the puzzles are printed rather small. They are much easier to solve if you copy them and blow them up. (That way, also, you won't ruin your book with markings.)

If you enjoyed this, you will probably also like THE Book of Word Games: Parlett's Guide to 150 Great and Quick-to-Learn Word Games. It is word-focused, but there is plenty of logical deduction required in many of the games.

I really liked it because it starts out with simpler exercises to motivate you to move forward.
Practical format with wire binding and enough space to do quick calcs on the margins.
I found it very engaging and a surprisingly relaxing exercise.

I bought this to study for the supervised Mensa test. Great book for anyone wanting to exercise their brain, study for the test or just keep around for amusement.
