The book's cover says "over 200 puzzles that make you think," and that it does! Also, the book comes with the answers and many of the answers have brief explanations, so you can understand how to solve them. This really comes in handy when you go to level 2. I am not a big puzzler, with cryptograms being my favorite, but some of these I have not seen before. Others were new takes on old style puzzles.
"BIG brain" is an enjoyable, thought provoking, and mentally exercising book. Lots of these puzzles took time for me and that was only Level 1. This book is sponsored by the Alzheimer's association and includes the ten signs to be aware of and where to get more information. This was a most enjoyable way to spend time exercising the mental muscles.
some that is fully functioning and more capable that begining or moderate Alzheimers. A disappointment for the money spent. It goes out with the donation items. Don't waste your money, regardless of the recommendation of the Alzheimier's Association. Buy something at Walmart in the childrens book department that is of more use and more
useable for your loved one. Simple and EASY Crossword puzzles or easy 5th grade or 3rd grade work books are much better for your time and money.
1. He has created an entertaining and challenging collection of brain teasers that everyone will enjoy; and
2. He has collaborated with the book's sponsor, the Alzheimer's Association, to present a series of mental gymnastics designed specifically to stimulate the minds of older readers to help them keep their thinking skills agile and young. What a great accomplishment that is!
Thank you, Terry, for all the good work you do.
