This book gives you a "workout for the brain". There are puzzles for all levels, for puzzle lovers that had done them for years, for people that enjoy working with word search or crossword puzzles...or for people like me...first time experience. This book kept me three days working hard on each one of the puzzles. You will have fun reading and solving each puzzle and laughing at many of the solutions. I recommend this book to everyone, but for the age group to which I belong..."late 50's" I sincerely feel is a must. Our brain needs to be challenged and as we grow "wiser".lol ..we know is imperative to keep our neurons functioning. If you have a family member that stays at home and only watch TV...Please give him or her a copy. It's affordable and you will be doing this person an invaluable favor.

Fabulous book! I highly recommend it. To keep the brain active whether one has a dysfunction or not. It is perfect as a gift for those people who have everything, they will be constantly entertained and keep their brains actively working. This book should, or could be donated to nursing homes, hospitals, rehab facilities... think about it, wouldn't that be a useful donation? I bought mine at the local Barnes & Noble, and highly recommend you get one too. Terry Stickles has outdone himself.

Stickels does it again and again. I was thrilled to see this new offering...and concur with the Alzheimers folks. Keeping the brain agile using puzzle solving is a fun and easy way to keep your mind young. This book has something for puzzle solvers of ALL ages and interests. I am crazy for the spacial-visuals, but this book has engaged me throughout. My old high school math skills are even coming back. Thank you, Terry Stickels, for making it easy to THINK again!
