"Life captures in words and vibrant pictures the customs of Christmas everywhere, from Sinterklass in Holland to the observance of the winter solstice at England's Stonehenge to the origins of this great day in the Holy Land. On Christmas, the world rejoices and reflects. Here, LIFE does too, in this special commemorative edition."

Based on a popular feature in the now defunct Life Magazine "Life: Picture Puzzle" has 90 puzzles in which readers look at two pictures of the same thing and try to find the differences between each puzzle. In a few instances, six pictures of the same thing are shown and readers have to find the one puzzle out of the six that has been changed. There are four levels of difficulty: Novice, Master, Expert and genius. For those who like a bit of an extra challenge, the editors suggest a completion time for each puzzle. While long-time readers of Life Magazine may recognize some of the puzzles, the editors reworked them with new changes. In fact, they use some of the same pictures in the book at different levels and with completely different changes.

"Life: Picture Puzzle" is a fun challenging puzzle book. I thought that with 90 puzzles in the book, the more puzzles I solved there would be repetition of the differences and it would be easier to solve the puzzles but that wasn't true. Some of the puzzles did have obvious changes including obvious color changes, but there were many puzzles in which I couldn't find all the changes. Several of the puzzles offer hints to some of the changes in either the title or description of the puzzle. The number of changes in the puzzles range from as little as six changes to as many as 20; the more changes, the harder the puzzle. The editors do a good job of sorting each puzzle into the appropriate level of difficulty. The Novice Section is easy enough and solvers should easily find the first five or six changes in each puzzle while having to search a bit for the last few. The more details in the picture in the puzzle, the harder it is to solve. "Easter Surprise" with six pictures where solvers have to find the different one was a nice change.

This book is for those folks who are really good at picking out minute differences, or who think they are. There is nothing more frustrating than staring and staring at a set of pictures and trying to find that last thing that's been changed and then kicking yourself when you look up the answer. Some are easy, others, well - are not so easy. The book is arranged from the easiest to the hardest with a suggested time to complete the challenge. Enjoyable fun for the family, particularly between competitive siblings or spouses.

What fun. This will keep your mind working. I get board with the conventional puzzle books but this one is not only a challenge but fun. The photos get harder as you move through the book. The only down fall I had was how to mark my choices so I could see them to count. Did you find all the differences??

This was a gift for my wife, she is wild about the weekly puzzles in the Life Magazine. This puts a bunch of puzzles in one place and she is having a ball.

Amazon got it here several days ahead of schedule. I wish every one I dealt with was as fast.

These are great puzzles. The sections divided by skill levels are very well done. Great book for little spaces of time in doctors offices and airports when you just want to "hunt" for something on these pages.

My wife and I enjoy doing the picture puzzle which is part of the weekly supplement to our newspaper. We, therefore ordered the book. We were pleased to find that the picture puzzles are progressively graded in degree of difficulty. This has allowed us to do them selectively with our grandchildren providing them with a fun challenge without undue frustration. It also serves well as a coffee table activity book. No pencil marks, etc are required in the book so the same visual puzzles can be done by new players.
