What makes this series of brain checkers so 'enjoyable' is that they are all in color and demand an interactive approach: you know at the end of the test whether you arrived at the right answer or not. It may be simple to figure out how to use this interactive book, but the 'simplicity' ends there. These are tough tests and require mature concentration form the user. We are living in a time when people congregate at the gyms for workouts, tape cardiotimers to the arms for walking/jogging/running/ and buy into nutritional programs and that is all a step in the right direction: these activities help fight the war on obesity that is threatening national health. But equally important is providing a workout for the brain - the only inexpensive tactics to fend off creeping senility and dare we say Alzheimer's disease? Perhaps the language is too strong and certainly the Grabarchuk Family does not purport such claims. But these games and puzzles are far more than entertaining: these 100 Puzzle Quizzes are Healthy!

Very good book and glad I grabbed several others when I did as they do make for a pleasant diversion when I need to take a spell from reading.

All of the one hundred puzzles are visual. I started with #1, and as I advanced, the difficulty of the puzzles gradually increased. I didn't have too much of a problem solving the first dozen or so puzzles, but they became progressively more challenging, and with some of them, my first answer was incorrect (you can keep guessing until you get it right). The first puzzle that gave me a problem was #6 - Wire Signs, but once I understood how the "Wire" puzzles worked, I was able to solve the later ones. One of my favorite puzzles was #25 - Bird Totem Pole. You could solve this with some geometry and basic mathematics, but take a shot at it using only deductive logic for a simpler but more elegant answer. The puzzles don't have to be solved sequentially - you can begin anywhere and work in any order. The solution pages show very clearly what the correct answers are and the logic behind the solutions.
The puzzles included a number of different types, most of them fitting into the categories of visual, spatial, counting, geometry, matchstick, coins, searching, and deductive logic. I've seen similar types of puzzles on IQ tests, so these would be great practice for such a test. I know very little about the functioning of the brain, but I think these puzzles will give your logic circuits a pretty good workout.
I worked the puzzles on my Kindle Fire HD tablet. These are the same puzzles that are in "100 Puzzle Quizzes (Interactive Puzzlebook for E-readers)," but they're in color, and they're intended for devices with color touch screens.
As much enjoyment as I had with "100 Puzzle Quizzes," I'm really looking forward to turning some of my whiz kid nieces and nephews loose with the puzzles some rainy day. They've worked several of the Puzzlebooks, and they love solving the puzzles as much as I do.
