We bought this for my grandmother who loves brain teasers and crossword puzzles. There is a HUGE variety of challenging but not frustratingly challenging puzzles in this book. No Sudoku or crosswords but a ton of super fun thought provoking games. Awesome book for everyone!

I'm just about finished with this book, it's one of those books you NEVER want to finish. I've enjoyed it so much and learned much as well. I wish she'd have part 2, 3, etc. Thanks Nancy.
