Quirky witty brainteasers!

This book was surprisingly fun and engaging! It was fun trying to solve the puzzles and riddles. Some had unique and shocking solutions that I didn't see coming! The author Karen J. Bun was very clever with creating this book. I love that links are provided for the visual puzzles. Rob Hegner is an amazing narrator, and very engaging to listen to. I highly recommend for anyone who enjoys logic puzzles.
I received this book free in exchange for my honest review. I truly found this audiobook a pleasure to listen to, particularly for intellectuals, Introverts, and people who enjoy verbal and visual puzzles.

Challenging

Brilliant book with puzzles that involve mathematics and logic. The book have puzzles about dominoes, numbers, daily applications, and many others. The book have also reference to Soviet Union culture, so this book may be a good, refreshing read for American readers as an exploration to other culture. The puzzles presented in the book are quite challenging, requires thinking, either inside-the-box with well-known techniques and also out-of-the-box thinking.

Quite a few of the puzzles do need mathematical skill, especially on numbers theory. Basic skills such as probability and basic calculation are of course required. The variety of puzzles, mathematical challenge, and other type of logical challenge is enough to satisfy readers that love mathematics and logical challenge. All puzzles solution are really well explained, thus you will find the answers rewarding too.

Top Class production

The puzzles vary from being very easy to very tough. The cool thing about this book is that the puzzles are almost unique. You won't find them in another puzzle book.

Good book for a child to learn some concepts

Brain teasers for the young and not so educated people. Great book. Just doing a few problems I can see this being a great book to start shaping the thought process for a young mind.

This is just what I was looking for

If you want something that has really great brain teasers, this is your book. You will spend time working on some of these but it will be worth it. The answers are in the back of the book just in case you get stumped. :-)
