Publisher's summary

Learn how to to ask the right questions, solve problems, and think more clearly.

In traditional education, you're taught to recite and regurgitate. But there is rarely application, and information just becomes information for information’s sake. Does this actually make us smarter and more clever, or do we just get better at taking tests?

Test yourself with over 30 maddening riddles and brain teasers designed to make you think outside the box. Learn to Think Using Riddles, Brain Teasers, and Wordplay is about how to think backward, forward, and sideways.

Starting with a conclusion and finding the possible causes forces you to analyze, investigate, draw connections, and hypothesize. You need to explore all angles and let no stone remain unturned. Actually, this is exactly what real life is like.

This book will confuse, frustrate, and ultimately improve your thinking prowess like nothing else, on account of being thrown into the mental deep end. Challenge yourself, and you will grow. Think like Sherlock Holmes and quickly cut to the core of an issue. 

Patrick King is an internationally best-selling author and social skills coach. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from scientific research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience.

Become more naturally curious, inquisitive, and insightful. Try these:

  • What 5-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?
  • A woman gives birth one day to two sons; they are both born in the same hour, in the same day, in the same year. However, they are not twins. How?
  • A man hears his name spoken and is immediately taken away by two other men. Some time later, the man dies under the care of others. What happened to this man?
  • A cowboy rides into town on Friday, stays for just three nights and then leaves on Friday - how is this possible?

Apply your new mental models in all facets of life. Everyone loves riddles, and they enable us to explore more abstract situations and reason through them. Master riddles, and you can master simply dealing with difficult, uncertain, impossible, or confusing questions and situations.

good introductory book on different perspectives

I've been playing RPGs and reading fantasy novels since I was a little boy so some of these riddles did not lend themselves well to an audio book.

the right questions tonask yourself was vital though
