5.0 out of 5 stars Taut, clever, and insightful, April 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was a lot of fun to read and also edifying on several levels. Many times I found myself lost in the action as well as the meditations. This author really knows how to write in many moods and voices, with a sure grasp of the language and story structure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too short!, June 23, 2006
This book is a workout for the mind. It covers many logic puzzle types, and by the time you're done with a set, you feel like you've mastered a new skill. I wish they'd put one of these out every year!

This lego technics set is beautifully engineered. It's fun to build, and to display, but the real beauty is in the rubber-band and impact-driven transformation.
The transform features a complex chain reaction. The rolling motion onto the protruding switch releases the forelegs. The extended forelegs absorb the same rolling impact, and this releases the hind leg, which in turn uncurls the body and releases the upper arms and head. The outflung upper arms then allow the lower arms to spring out.
This is only fun WHEN IT WORKS. There is a problem with the foreleg rubber bands needing to be in EXACTLY right configuration (each should dip UNDER the knob between the two connectors).
Also, making an "X" pattern out of the head's rubber bands seems to help.
