This version of the book is for E-reader devices and contains black and white images. Each puzzle is designed to load fast on E-readers and the graphics are sharp and simple and easy to interpret but sometimes not easy to solve. That's why it is a puzzle book.
This book is a collection of a wonderful and challenging set of puzzles. They are visually and graphically well designed and thought-provoking. This book will provide you hours of enjoyment and offers you an interesting way to evaluate something in depth and think outside of the box. I own several of these books from the Grabarchuk family and I have loved them all. If you are looking for a color version for a higher end tablet then take a look at this book:
100 Puzzle Quizzes HD (Interactive Puzzlebook for Tablets)
I enjoyed this book and I believe you will enjoy it too!
I purchased this book on the day it was released and free to everybody.
The following are some examples: The thirty seventh has three stars indicating that it is fairly hard. It shows a design made out of lines and asks which of four words could fit into the deign? Number thirty eight shows a picture of steps running along the outside of a square and steps within the square and asks "what is the least number of steps needed to reach floor F?" The hundredth puzzle, like three others, has five stars. It shows two columns of three dice in each. It asks "which tower shows the larger sum of total outer surface?" See my review of the tablet version for other examples.
I did find myself wishing that the puzzles came with better instructions on how to complete. I had to cheat a few times and see if I had the right answer until I got a better understanding of how that particular puzzle worked. As I played more, I realized that it was easier to figure out what the puzzle was asking. So the more I played the better I got.
My only complaint is I found the 5 way button a bit difficult to use when answering. I would rather have typed the answer, of course that wouldn’t work well for all the different kinds of Kindles out there. But if you like puzzles and brain teasers, you will love this item. I played it on my Kindle with keyboard. Color would add a bit of spice to the game if you have a Fire or other tablet.
The range of difficulty makes it particularly interesting. You will get a false sense of confidence from solving the easy ones- the other end of the spectrum, the really difficult ones will give you headaches! But the headaches are of a fun variety where you are thinking very hard.
I'm currently working on a very challenging project at work and I'm finding that the puzzles in this book are helping me. They are spurring me onto new heights of creativity and thinking out-of-the-box.
This book will rejuvenate your creative instincts and provide you with tons of amusement - making it dually useful.
I recommend this book highly.
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 Paperwhite.Read more ›

Though there are a lot of puzzles already in the internet but bought this one just to look (curious) and for passing the time. I'm still satisfied with this. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Timothy E. L.
This book is awesome but most of the questions were hard, including the ones with choosing which views are incorrect. This book would be good for people with intelligence. Read morePublished 7 months ago by brian thong
