Entertain Your Brain: More than 850 Puzzles!by Ella Harris
If there’s a kind of puzzle not included in this incredibly varied collection, we can’t imagine what it is. There are math problems, lateral-thinking conundrums, brain teasers, whodunits, IQ tests, trivia quizzes…as well as an assortment of baffling optical illusions and amazing stunts using paper, scissors, and other items found around the house. It’s nonstop fun, but every one of these challenges will enhance real-life problem-solving skills. If you wrote down all the numbers from 1 to 100, how many times would you write the number 3? How old do you have to be to become a U.S. Senator? What 11-letter word is pronounced incorrectly by more than 99% of Ivy League graduates? (Answers: 20, 30, “incorrectly.”)

I bought this for my nephew (he's 13 years old), and he loves it. He's a math-a-maniac, so this is perfect for him, or anyone that enjoys logic problems and brain teasers. highly recommended!!
The cover of this book is really disceptive. I mean, really, who CARES who the editors are? Who are the puzzle writers of this book? A friend of mine turned me on to this great book, and I was surprised to see that one of my favorite puzzlers (Terry Stickels), was a HUGE contributor. How could any fans of these authors find this book? How come Frank Longo and Will Shortz get all the attention? C'mon, not everybody likes sudoku and crosswords. It is a GREAT puzzle book!
