Excellent book!

I bought this for a very sharp and young-at-heart relative who is having issues with her memory. She loves it! I found the problems very entertaining and bought one for myself. May help with tip-of-the-tongue syndrome, but if it doesn't, so what, it's still fun. With regard to cultural content, I would estimate this is appropriate for someone in their 40's or older. A younger person would have more difficulty, because they would be less likely to remember the people and events that are referenced.

Huge variety

This is better suited for older people. I was born in 1996 and cannot complete some of the challenges due to missing the pop culture references of things before my time. Regardless, there's tons of different activities. Worth the money.

Great resource

I actually use these for aphasia patients and other patients with cognitive deficits and it is a great resource. A good portion of this book is pretty challenging. The only negative I would give it is that it is geared towards an older population, which is great for what I use it for. Much of the trivia is comprised of much older cinema, actors, music, TV... But overall it is a great resource and actually pretty fun to go through.

Exercise your mind!

I bought 2 of these for my parents so they could exercise their minds and stop driving me crazy. My dad looked through it for 2 hours Christmas morning!! It was his favorite Christmas gift (from his favorite daughter of course). If you would like to save your own sanity and help anyone in your life who drives you nuts with forgetting things, get them this book to exercise their mind! Lol But seriously it is a fun book with lots of different puzzles, quizzes, games etc. Would be a fun bathroom book too😉

Love This Book

I bought this book on a whim because I wanted to do some brain teasers. I could not have imagined how much I would love it. It is definitely a lot harder than I expected, but the puzzles are so fun to do. I highly recommend this book if you like a challenging puzzle.

Entertaining

This audiobook has many different puzzles to keep your mind active. I enjoy doing a few activities every day. The puzzles are not too hard nor too easy, so I enjoy the challenge. There are plenty of pages for you with a variety of choices. I hope they come out with a new one in the future. I would buy it.

Awesome book!

My Mom and some friends have dementia, so I try to find ways to keep my brain active. This book contains a variety of word challenges that are both entertaining and educational. I've been out of school for a long time. The trivia challenges bring back both fun and fond memories. One friend said he wished he had received it before flying to Hawaii to pass the time away on the long plane trip. I already have the follow-up book on hand. Love the variety of challenges.
