This book has just the right mix of entertainment and brain teasers. This is the perfect commuter's pasttime. It's pocket sized. The little fun facts and stories are very entertaining. And, the puzzles are quick enough to be completed during a train ride, while sipping your latte, or just when you're bored. I definitely would recommend this book to a friend, or anyone who really loves coffee.
