Not a great format for audio, not great puzzles

This book has a series of puzzles that encourage you to use lateral thinking, or thinking outside the box.

The thing that really frustrated me about this read the format, which seems to have been lifted directly from a print book without any consideration whatever. The format has a series of puzzles followed by a series of solutions in the same chapter. If you really want to know the solution to a puzzle that you can't solve, you'll have to wait though all the other puzzles and solutions to the earlier puzzles. Even if you can remember, enthusiasm gets lost along the way as you have to listen to other puzzles and solutions before reaching the one you want.

A couple of the puzzles I already knew.

A lot of the puzzles are not necessarily what I would call logic puzzles, which in my world means you use a series of logical deductions to solve them. Many of the puzzles do not give you enough information to make their solution a logical inference, and even after hearing the solution, it's clear that this is not a solution so much as one of several possible solutions. It left me with the feeling that any arbitrary answer would do if you could make it fit the few facts given, making it less of a puzzle and more of an imagination exercise. A few of the puzzles that could have been good omitted information crucial to the solution.

There were one whose solution I could not understand, as it referenced a chart that I did not have access to, leaving me with the sense that perhaps some of the missing information and assumptions in answers came from diagrams and pictures in the print version not present in this one.

I think this might be okay for young kids in print form. As an audiobook, I would only recommend it as an exercise in patience.
