About the original 1000 PlayThinks,Will Shortz of The New York Times said it best: “The most wide-ranging, visually appealing, entertaining, gigantic collection of brainteasers since Sam Loyd’s Cyclopedia of Puzzles almost a century ago.” Inside The Big Book of Brain Games, you will find an obsessive collection of 1,000 challenges, puzzles, riddles, illusions—originals as well as must-do classics—it’s like salted peanuts for the brain. With jampacked pages and a full-color illustration for each entry, the book, opened anywhere, is a call to action. (And it’s guaranteed to make you smarter.) Twelve basic categories include Geometry, Patterns, Numbers, Logic and Probability, and Perception. An easy-to-read key at the top of each game ranks its difficulty on a scale of 1 to 10, while indices in the back cross-reference the puzzles. (You’ll find the answers back there, too.)

From the Back Cover:

A compulsive, exuberant cornucopia of puzzles, The Big Book of Brain Games is like salted peanuts for the mind. Here are mental games, visual challenges, logic posers, riddles and illusions.

Comprised of both original puzzles and mind-boggling adaptations of classics, this book, written by a man Wired magazine called “a living inspiration for the rest of us,” celebrates that unique place where pure play and problem solving coexist.

Start solving, and right away you’ll feel smart, intuitive, curious, successful and at one with the beauty of mathematics.
