3.0 out of 5 stars Try Other Grabarchuk Books, December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While still being a decent collection for its price, there simply aren't enough puzzles. Most puzzle types in this one were already explored in other Kindle books by the same authors--and, I'm a sucker for innovation.

Try other puzzle books by the Grabarchuk family. Purchase at least one of the Puzzlebooks 100/101/102 Puzzle Quizzes. And it's already a crime if you don't own the The Big, Big, Big Book of Brainteasers yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Puzzle Books Published. Ever!, October 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nearly all puzzle books out there are merely compilations of past works or overused classics. Rarely comes a collection of original puzzles that really "puzzles" at the same time. Well, this is it.

Here is the Grabarchuk Family at their best: Original visual puzzles with beautiful graphics. And the book is executed exceptionally well. Solutions are detailed and equally beautiful, if not more so. At the back of the book, there are tiles, boards and pieces to be cut out for the 70 or so manipulative puzzles.

567 delightful puzzles at this price is simply too much. 6 out of 5 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Set of Puzzles for Your E-book Reader, October 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just as in Puzzlebook: 100 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!) and Puzzlebook: 101 Puzzle Quizzes (color and interactive!), the Grabarchuk Family manages to display a good variety of innovative puzzles even though the medium presents a limited space (multiple-choice puzzles to be solved visually).

Graphics are beautiful. You can easily navigate through the e-book, instantly check if your answer is correct, and return where you were via a single button. The solutions section not only gives you the correct answers but also presents detailed solutions with graphics.

There is no question that this is an exceptional collection for its price. Check out other Grabarchuk books, wherever you find them, if you simply look for innovation and challenge. The Big, Big, Big Book of Brainteasers is especially recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Set of Puzzles for an E-book, September 17, 2011

Although the medium presents a limited space (multiple-choice puzzles to be solved visually), the Grabarchuk Family manages to display a good variety of innovative puzzles.

Graphics are beautiful. You can easily navigate through the e-book, instantly check if your answer is correct, and return where you were via a single button. The solutions section not only gives you the correct answers but also presents detailed solutions with graphics.

Nearly half of the puzzles use repeat ideas within the book, but tastefully done. Difficulty is well balanced. Nobody will find the puzzles all too easy or all too hard.

There is no question that this is an exceptional collection for its price. I must also recommend other Grabarchuk books, wherever you find them, if you simply look for innovation and challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Innovative, September 18, 2008
Unlike many puzzle books out there, this one contains all original and never-before-seen puzzles only. A treat the most avid puzzle fans may expect from any book by the Grabarchuk family of puzzle designers.

108 entertaining puzzles with detailed solutions from a diverse range of disciplines: Visual problems, mind benders, coin/matchstick puzzles and word challenges. A significant number of puzzles also include unexpected tricks to be discovered.

Simply innovative, and not-so-simple indeed.
