An old favorite--Mensa Math & Logic Puzzles--gets a brand-new look: it's now in color! And the puzzles are fantastic: they're the kind of challenge found at the World Puzzle Championships, and they require no language to solve. For example, you are given a grid of dots that has some numbers (0, 1, 2, or 3) in them. You need to connect the dots in one continuous path so that each number is surrounded by that many lines. So a "3" means that three of the four sides around it must be connected. All the puzzles are similar abstract exercises, and all have unique solutions that can be reached using pure logic. They're difficult--and really satisfying exercise for your brain.

Logical thinking: challenges that must be solved with logic, making inferences until finding the solution or, sometimes, eliminating the other alternatives. Mathematical knowledge: it will be necessary to know mathematical (and sometimes physical) principles to solve certain puzzles. Paper and pencil: challenges in which drawing schemes is necessary to reach the solution of certain mental games (although the most daring will continue to solve them in the head only). Spatial vision: challenges in which one must be able to imagine figures that are intertwined in two or three dimensions.
