This didn t have anything in it that s not already in hundreds of puzzle books Certainly nothing original I m completely sure the author didn t invent a single puzzle for this book Moreover, the explanations are clumsy and unenlightening Unforgivably, there are important assumptions missing at a few vital places For instance, in the famous SEND MORE MONEY puzzle, there s no mention that the M s can t be zeroes, nor that two different letters can t stand for the same number So 0000 0000 00000 solves the puzzle, from the rules given.I guess if this was the first puzzle book you ever saw in your life, and if you ve never heard a riddle before, this would be enjoyable. Quick What S A One Syllable Word With Nine Letters Here S A Treasure Chest Filled With Over Math Puzzles, Logic Problems, And Word Games To Test If You Re Borderline Intelligent, Smart Or Super Intelligent At First Glance, These Games May Seem Impossible To Solve, But Persistence And Creativity Usually Yield Successful Results If Not, The Solutions Are Listed At The Back Of The Book X BW Illus I completely forgot about these books until I saw them on a friend s shelf I remember reading them in the 70s and 80s My father bought them and my brother and I were fascinated by the riddles and puzzles in them Really cool books that are entirely appropriate for elementary age kids and adults particularly ones that are intellectually curious Educational and entertaining How to determine the height of a building using a barometer Too obvious better answer, hold it level with the top edge, drop and time until it smashes on ground, use laws of gravity to calculate height I ve had fun taunting friends over the years with some of these puzzles. interesting for the not so intelligent too I registered a book at BookCrossing.com
