Serhiy Grabarchuk, Peter Grabarchuk and Serhiy Grabarchuk Jr., better known as the Grabarchuk Family, should soar to the top of the list of erudite ministers of brainpower. They live in the Ukraine and are making a major impact on not only those who enjoy solving puzzles and quizzes, but also those who are committed to exercising the neurons that connect to improve intelligence. Their 'talents for visualization that is unparalleled', and that is an understatement. For those who have become addicted to the very popular eBook forms of PUZZLE QUIZZES 100 AND PUZZLE QUIZZES 101 the concept of what lies in this very beautifully designed, richly colorful book will be apparent. But the energy gained from spending a couple of evenings a week exploring the types of brain teasers contained in this volume should be incentive enough to continue to improve brain health AND to begin paying equal attention to physical health - in order to one-up yourself! As the authors phrase it, 'This collection of brainteasers embraces a wide variety of puzzle types, designed to appeal to all levels of puzzlers, from the novice to the experienced solver. None of the puzzles requires any special knowledge except for the basics of arithmetic, geometry, and algebra. The only things you'll really need to fully enjoy the book are a can-do attitude, logical reasoning, and creative thinking.' On very durable coated paper the book contains geometrical and visual puzzles, both 2 and 3 dimensional, involving calculation, observation, estimation, and pathfinding. There are also pencil and paper puzzles, dissection puzzles, math and logic puzzles, and manipulative puzzles - something to interest and challenge everyone wise enough to plug into this excellent brain food source. Of course included in the back of the book are the solutions for every puzzle presented so the reader and thinker will not be frustrated by puzzles that seem impossible to solve. Consider this book as a gift for children of ALL ages - and for adults who have the stamina and inquisitive minds of children. It is not only a book of learning, it is also a wonderfully entertaining and rewarding way to use your spare time. Grady HarpWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
