Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it's still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Format: Paperback
There is no point in my repeating what the Midwest review had to say.
As a lifelong lover of puzzles;I would like to suggest who would like this book.
Generally, it is a basic puzzle book giving a brief selection of popular types of puzzles.Anyone who has spent time with puzzles,will be familiar with many of the 400 puzzles in this book;as many of them have appeared in many books.
I had never come across the two books by Lemming,even though I have somewhere around 600 "puzzle books" ;nor have I even come across his name.Maybe they pretty much disappeared by the time I got interested in puzzles,sometime around 1950.I don't think Leeming created many of these puzzles,as most of them are really classics.

There is a good variety of puzzles included;

54 Word and Letter Puzzles
40 Matchstick Puzzles
94 Brain Twisters eg.How did this happen? There was a wedding one
day recently that had the following results.The father of a young
woman became her husband's brother-in- law,and her husband's sister
became her stepmother.How come? Ans. The young woman's father
married the sister of the man to whomhis daughter was married.
38 Number Puzzles and Magic Squares
19 Coin Puzzles
15 Anagram Puzzles
29 Paper and Paper Puzzles
24 Teaser Puzzles
72 Mathematical Puzzles
23 Cut-Out Puzzles-- Construction,Put- Together,Tangrams,Etc.
So,the book has a bit of everything.It would be excellent for anyone,of any age,who is relatively new to puzzle books;but pretty much well known puzzles to anyone who has been much of a fan of them.
Definitely, excellent for beginners,but not much new for "old hands".

"It is one of man's curious idiosyncracies to create difficulties
for the pleasure of resolving them.'
----Joseph de Maistre,Political Philosopher 1753-1821

Want to keep your mind in good shape? Research shows that to keep and active and sharp mind, doing puzzles is a great way to stimulate the intellect. "Fabulous Fun with Puzzles", originally published in 1947 (long before the dumbing down effect of popular television programming) includes riddles, brain teasers, matchstick challenges, math posers, and letter puzzles, as well as utilizing pencil and paper, coins and matchsticks as part of puzzle challenges. Great for doing puzzle solution exercises alone or as a fun pastime challenging friends and family, "Fabulous Fun with Puzzles" combines over 400 puzzles ranging from two classic puzzle collections by the late puzzle and craft master, J. Leeming, to puzzles created specifically for this compendium of head-scratchers. Although published over 60 years ago, these puzzles are as relevant today as they were back then. Fun and creative "Fabulous Fun with Puzzles" will keep readers challenged for hours and hours of stimulating fun! A great gift idea, "Fabulous Fun with Puzzles" is very highly recommended for personal, family, and community library collections as well.
