Alice laughed. 'One can't believe impossible things.'

'I dare say you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen... 'Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'

~Lewis Carroll, Alice Through the Looking-Glass

Could there be a knife that never dulls? A gun with no moving parts? A broken clock that tells time?

Here, Dr. Michael Laufer and John Nolan reply, "Of course!" Through these conundrums, they show how to unleash the creative energies of the brain to solve even the knottiest enigmas. For instance, one could:

  • Reinterpret the problem.
  • Change the rules.
  • Change the solution.
Whether it's showering without water, driving a car without an engine, or using a computer without electricity, these are high-level challenges for breakout thinking. With this book, you'll stretch your minds and be primed to solve the next "impossible" problem before lunchtime.
