Top review from Australia
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I like that there were hints and clues to help you figure it out along the way.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The puzzles are not only interesting and challenging but educational too. Covering a wide range of topics, from different eras of inventions and problem solving.
I also like that the puzzle answer is just a page flip away, not looking back and forth to get the solutions. The latter I always found SO annoying in other puzzle books.
The teasers start with fairly simple ones and continue through to moderate and more difficult challenges. That I also appreciate. I'm going to try to do at least a couple every day and in the order they are given in this ebook.
Give it a try! I'm glad I did.😏
Helpful votes are always appreciated!
