This book is packed with fun puzzles and brain teasers. Unfortunately, it is also littered from cover to cover with annoying careless editing mistakes. There is hardly a chapter that doesn't have numerous errors ranging from common typos to completely wrong puzzle solutions (for example, on p. 141, the question is posed, "How many enclosed areas are formed by two overlapping rounded rectangles?" The answer provided on page 153 is "10 overlapping areas"! Hmm. Additionally, instructions and descriptions of the exercises are often vague and confusing. There are no explanations for why solutions have been determined, and because there are so many obvious mistakes, you can't depend on whether the solutions they offer are correct or not. That is pretty frustrating. Despite the dismal editing job, this is still a fun book of mental exercises.
