A fun book of no-time-to-lose, far out predicaments that you need to find a way out of (it's NOT a how-to book).Each short story unfolds an unusual, no-time-to-lose, and sometimes life and death predicament, and then challenges you to come up with a solution to help one of the characters out the situation they suddenly find themselves in. They're a fun way to develop your creativity and jump start your ability to think and react quickly, especially in situations where things are happening very fast. In some, you may need to suspend your disbelief to play along. Some will make your head spin. Others may make your heart pound. Still others will make you go hmmm. But all will challenge you to think outside your comfort zone, to look for solutions from different angles, and to not necessarily limit yourself to what you see and what the obvious solution could be. They will stretch your mind and help you to develop your ability to formulate a solution in situations where you must quickly decide upon a course of action and there's little available information to work with.

I don't even know where to start when it comes to what an incredible concept for a novel that this is. I am not a creative person, but I love mysteries and thrillers. Well, this book wraps all of that up in to mini-scenarios and then challenges you to figure out what to do to get out of that situation. It was an absolute blast! By the end, I can honestly say that I had improved my creativity by leaps and bounds. A little secret--My husband and I would each read the same chapter, and then we would debate, discuss, and try to out maneuver each others endings. So. Much. FUN!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see what this author comes out with next!
