These will challenge the way you think, introduce you to new ways to look at problems, and expand your mind. People who love riddles, puzzles, and brain teasers are familiar with the rush of the "aha!" moment, the "that's it!" moment, that "of course!" moment, the moment of clarity that you get when the lightbulb goes off and you've figured it all out. Those moments are great exercise for your mind and brain and will help to keep you mentally sharp. Even if you are new to riddles, puzzles, and brain teasers this book will be a fun and exciting read; it will help you become a better problem solver and become more comfortable with thinking outside the box. The puzzles in this book range in difficulty from light & easy to hard to very hard and will provide a challenge for even the sharpest mind. There are discrete reasoning riddles, mathematical reasoning riddles, practical reasoning riddles, and some classical logic riddles as well, along with the old school problem-solving puzzles that you might have come across in school. There is no word play, the puzzles have definite and satisfying answers, and some of them will blow your mind. In this book you will be figuring out how to cross bridges, how to escape from prison cells, how to steal rope, how to shoot cyborgs, how to transport bananas through the desert, how to figure out the color of a hat you have on, how to turn on lightbulbs, and how to save a ton of prisoners from being executed! Enjoy it! ...and remember, once you peek at the solution you will never be able to unsee it!

This is a collection of 75 fun, challenging, and satisfying wordplay riddles! A drastically different yet essential counterpart to my first collection of riddles, “Of Course!”, these are easy-to-remember and fun-to-share word riddles that describe some object, thing, or place. Typically they follow a limerick-inspired rhyming structure and sometimes have pretty out-of-the-box answers. This book is filled with the classics that many riddle-loving people will be familiar with, and also filled with many new and original riddles that you can be sure you've never heard before. The difficulty ranges from easy to quite difficult, but never are these riddles so cryptic and “tricky” that you won't be able to figure out the answer with enough thought. Even the simple ones feel good to solve. They are designed to be satisfying, tight, and fulfilling. It is my hope that not even one of these riddles leaves a feeling of “well that was stupid” or “that doesn't make any sense”. They are meant to be written so that as soon as you think of the solution, you are completely sure that that is the correct answer! In case you are unfamiliar with this style of riddle, here are a few classic examples from the “Classic Riddles” section of the book that display the range of wordplay and styles. I don't want to spoil anything so the solution to these riddles can be found in the book! You can also use the “Look Inside” feature that Amazon provides to get a preview of more riddles and see if this format is something you will have fun with. ---------- 1) The more I dry, the wetter I get. What am I? 2) Forwards I am heavy, backwards I am not. What am I? 3) The poor have me; the rich need me; and you will die if you eat me. What am I? 4) You can crack me; you can make me; you can tell me; you can play me. What am I? ---------- This book should give you many hours of enjoyment and a nice workout for your brain! Please enjoy!

There's training to be an Olympic Athlete. Then there is training to a Russian Spy. Both extremely difficult and a much esteemed percentage of people around the world get to be picked for it. But there is no shadow of doubt which of these requires a person to be literally Jack of all trades- smart, cunning, highly intelligent, resilient and the perfect mix of brains and brawns. There is an aura of mysticism surrounding Spies and very few people have told the tale of where it all began- in the training room. Put together by means that better remain cloaked, or perhaps a story for another time, author Igor Suvorov brings you a choice collection of fifty riddles and brain teasers that these Soviet and Russian spies had to clear in order to be deemed fit to be released to the field. Anyone can solve a riddle, but these are the riddles that only as few as 4% of untrained people will be able to solve! As if that is not good enough, the person taking the exam has to clear 94% of all the presented questions. This is the holy grail of all spy brain teasers, a book that you can keep your brain sharp with, a tool with which you can spend endless hours poring over. Have you go what it takes? Time to find out! It's not just hard to be a Russian Spy; it's VERY hard and only the sharpest mind will be one.
This book has been written after a long research from web forums, library books, past conversations with friends, and old notebooks. You can find most of these brain teasers and riddles on websites and other books. However, you will not be able to find these diverse collections in one particular place. They are especially suitable for children between the age bracket of 5 years and 12 years. This collection of 200 brain teasers is not only amazing but unique in style and design. Many riddle-lovers will agree with us that most of them involve truth tellers and liars whose solutions are based on the same reasoning and logic. The content is fresh and challenging and one that allows the problem solver to explore different approaches to their solution. It has been my pleasure to put up this collection together, and we hope that you will enjoy reading this diverse collection of riddles and brain teasers that have been put together in one book. Having such an extensive but focused collection of riddles all condensed into one place is a dream come true for any riddle-loving kid.
