5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and fast read, February 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An interesting book that makes a case for the positive aspects of boredom as well as documenting the influence that boredom has had on art and literature. Worth a quick read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Riddled with errors, May 15, 2011
It did not take long after working on just a few of these puzzles to discover that this book is riddled with errors. Moreover, the errors are in the logic itself, thereby defeating the whole purpose of the book. The explanations are poor as well and sometimes even more dense and complicated than the questions themselves. For example, the book in the very beginning advises you to draw charts to help solve the problems. Despite the book's advice that drawing is indispensable, the book's author did not feel the need to include any drawings in the answer/explanation key. Therefore, you are forced to try and figure out a dense logic problem with a dense explanation as to how to solve a logic problem. I would caution anyone to not buy this book. You will only frustrate yourself trying to understand the flawed logic of the writer.
