This book is so much fun! I had originally bought it for my 11-year-old son to expose him to something new. He ended up being incredibly good at it right off the bat, and I totally stunk!! But now, I have caught onto the concept of thinking outside the box and we have so much fun working out the scenarios. Very entertaining and challenging.

I have been keen on lateral puzzles for more decades than I care to admit to. This is a great sample of life situations where you need to twist your thinking a bit to arrive at the solution. It's no longer all about improbable circus acts and albatross pies!

I particularly liked The Shot That Saved. Speechless left me speechless. And I wonder how often The Plant is done??

I used this book with my learning disabled students in math class. It made them use their noggins, and they were actually competitive and enjoyed it.

I always enjoyed working on lateral thinking puzzles growing up. It was especially fun on trips for someone to come up with a riddle and then for the rest of the group to ask "yes"/"no" questions to figure out the answer. This book is great in that way, however, you have to have someone who wants to do the puzzles with you. I have not found someone who wants to do the book with me, so it is not as much fun as it could be.
