5.0 out of 5 stars CHALLANGING, USEFUL AND YOU GET FAR MORE THAN WHAT YOU PAY. What a delightful collection of puzzles this one is., June 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Puzzlebook: 100 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!) (Kindle Edition)
What a delightful Kindle download this one was! In this day and age it is so nice to get your monies' worth out of your hard earned dollar. This is most certainly the case here!

This is a collection of 100 visual puzzles (quizzes, if you will) which go from relatively easy; easy but challenging, to ones that present some difficulties and truly make you think. Now keep in mind that you are talking to an older guy here who throughout his life has had great problems with any sort of spatial puzzles and great, great problems visualizing geometric designs and diagrams. My brain simply does not work that way. I say this because I probably had more problems working through these puzzles than an "ordinary" person would.

It should be noted though that despite the fact that I am technologically challenged, (Read that as absolutely clueless as to electronic products such as smart phones, iPads, and even lap top computers, and to a great extent, by beloved Kindle) I found that I had no problem what so ever in navigating this program on my Kindle. At first I thought I would and even felt a bit intimidated by the excellent instructions provided by the author. But after working through four or three of the quizzes I suddenly "got it," and at that point the navigation become almost second nature for me.

While there is no color on the Kindle, that posed no problems what so ever. I suppose it would be prettier on some other device, but it is certainly not necessary to fully enjoy and learn from this little book.

I have recently had to spend a tremendous amount of time setting in various waiting rooms in the various offices of physicians. I always take my Kindle for reading and I must tell you that setting working these problems between my reading bouts was a refreshing change of pace. I have also noted that working such problems helps me stay a bit mentally sharper, and goodness knows I need all the help in that area I can get. Between my books, my crossword puzzle books I always carry and this nice little gathering of puzzles, I find that time goes by so much more quickly. It is so much better than watching ESPN or Lifetime movies on the T.V. located in these waiting rooms.

You most certainly get far more than you paid for with this one and I do highly recommend it.
