This isn't that book, but it's still a good one, and shows Scott Kim's playfulness. The book follows the following pattern:
1. Portion of the brain (occipital lobe)
2. Here's what occipital lobe does
3. Puzzles that deal with this part of the brain.
4. Solving techniques.
I've been putting puzzles together for a long time now, and much of the material in this book I did not know. There are certain puzzle types I prefer, and they all seem to use certain portions of my brain. I will try looking at other puzzle types with a new insight, now.
I'm pretty sure the answer to Question 3, Page 245 is incorrect (should be 89 not 93)
I'm fairly certain the answer to Puzzle 3, Page 44 should be 6, not 1 as shown.
