Out-of-the-Box Brainteasers

Out-of-the-Box Brainteasers

by Paul Sloane, Des Machale




In an international 100-meter sprint race, the athlete who ran the 100 meters in the fastest time was not the winner of the race. Why?

That's just one of the fun brainteasers in this entertaining book that will challenge you to think in new and intriguing ways.

Here's how to play: pick one of the puzzles, and with the help of a friend who looks at the answer, pose a series of yes-or no questions until, by the process of elimination and deduction, you arrive at the solution. Each puzzle can also be played solo. If you get stuck (and everyone does now and then), there are clues to help you along. Get creative and use your mental powers to solve over 150 mind-bending puzzles.

Are your logic skills up to par? Find out inside...

This Book is the worst piece of idiotic rambling i have ever picked up and defiled my brain with. Not a single one of the "puzzles" make even the smallest molecule of sense, instead creating scenarios so utterly insane and stupid that you would have to be insane to figure them out. Why can a quarter save a mans life? Because hes diabetic. Did you make that connection? I sure as heck didn't, and when it takes two paragraphs of explanation to show the reader that your LOGIC problem makes sense, you have failed as an author. If I could give negative stars, I would. On the up side, we did laugh incredibly hard at how stupid this book is and which parts of the author we would like to kick.
