From School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Moscovich believes that "now that most of the physical frontiers have been crossed the mental ones beckon us." He has created these visual challenges, riddles, and puzzles to help push thinking into these new frontiers. Some of them are completely original; others are adaptations of classic challenges. They are bold, bright, colorful, and genuinely inviting. They are arranged by mathematical or scientific category, and ranked by a degree of difficulty from 1 to 10. A key further subdivides them into mind puzzles, pencil-and-paper puzzles, those that must be traced or copied, and, finally, those that require cutting. Most can be done alone; some are for groups. When complete and total frustration has set in, readers can turn to the back of the book for the solutions, which are clearly...

Book Description
Don't think too hard or you'll never solve these logic puzzles and riddles. The answers to all 187 are easy once you catch the tricky wording. How can you tie a knot in a napkin by holding one end in each hand without letting go of it? Impossible, you say (or your friends will say, if you bet them). But: Cross your arms and hold a tip of the napkin in each hand. When you uncross your arms, the knot will be formed! Now try this riddle: I climbed up a cherry tree, where I found cherries. I did not pick cherries, nor did I leave cherries. How can you explain this? Answer: I climbed up a cherry tree with two cherries in my hand. I picked only one. I left the other one on the tree. I did not "pick cherries," because I "picked a cherry." Take this dare: My bird can fly faster than any supersonic plane. Here's how: If you put...

Book Description
Give your brain a workout on the type of brainteasers that challenge the best solvers at the World Puzzle Championships. They're tough, but fun, and the feeling of satisfaction you get when you succeed is simply unbeatable. Some of the puzzles are oldies but goodies, like battleships--and its many variants--where you search for a fleet hidden within a grid. In "Eminent Domain," try to determine which blanks cells are owned by the numbered ones. For "Hex Loops," locate a path that travels through adjacent hexagons: the trick is, it has to end where it started, and the lines can't touch or cross. From Snaky Tiles to Spiral Galaxies, these Mensa-level conundrums will get your mind in shape.

The book is illustrated with beautiful Victorian pen-and-ink drawings, reproductions of game boards, and diagrams that further invoke the mystical tone and the sharing of old secrets. The puzzles are fascinating and many are difficult (but cheating is allowed).
