For its price I definitely recommend all the puzzle lovers out there to get it. It's got some tantalizing, original puzzles in it, like they'll show you a close-up of an object and ask you to identify it. This is much harder than you think, but very entertaining. The "nursery rhyme" puzzles are truly one of its kind. They paraphrase a nursery rhyme into a mad-scientist's language and ask you to identify the jumbled nursery rhyme. Too bad there're only four such puzzles in it... And then there's also the silly "does canada have a july 4th" type of puzzles. This brings down the score, but really this puzzle book is as original as well as fun as one could possibly hope for.

Format: Paperback
There are two types of puzzles in this book. On each page there is a close up photo of a common object with a short textual clue underneath. For example, on page 37 there is a photo of two batteries and the caption is "Cell mates." Most of the time these puzzles are easy to solve, but there were some that I just could not get. One in particular was a paper towel with the caption, "Dam the flow."

The other puzzles are textual and some are tricky, but easy to solve if you are careful. For example, there is the question regarding what historical event occurred on November 31, 1793. Of course, with 30 days in November, there was no such day. My favorites were the garbled nursery rhymes. I found them easy to decipher, but I admired the cleverness that went into creating them.

This is an enjoyable collection of puzzles, they provided me with a great deal of relaxing mental stimulation, which is always a pleasure.

Some of it is tricky but it is otherwise fun. The fact that it is tricky makes it all the more enjoyable.
