My Take on the Book
These books were written for older children, but as I read the book and began to solve many of the brain puzzles, I found some were quite challenging. The puzzles made you focus and think often outside of the normal "math box" or the way you may solve a math problem.. You had to look at patterns, use numerical reasoning, and think logically. The reader must persevere because some puzzles take considerable time. There are some puzzles that are easier to finish, but many will make you concentrate.
I thought these books would be fun to work on with another person. You could discuss your strategy for solving the puzzles and learn from the other person.
