Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it's still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

I found this version to be sorta boring and outdated. It really didn't hold my interest. I was hoping for more brain teaser puzzles.
