    An Excellent Pick Up and Read

    This book makes a great addition to any one's library. The riddles are challenging and stimulating. I found my self picking it up when I had nothing else to do and spending hours trying to solve the riddles.

    Good, Enigmatic Fun

    This is a title the whole family -- from parents to 10- and 13-year olds enjoyed. Some of the riddles are old friends and others are puzzling new strangers. A perfect book for any kind of reading -- browsing, skipping or reading straight through. Good for a rainy, or sunny, day.

    Mind-bending Fun!

    This affordable book is completely filled with quizzes, puzzles, and riddles to stimulate the mind and while away your time. A couple of the queries are a bit cheesy in their answers, but most make sense and are quite amusing. This book is a good value and fun to do with someone else. Buy this book!
