Stickels, Terry H.
Current thinking suggests that solving brainteasing puzzles uses the same critical thinking skills needed to solve difficult math, science, and business problems. This book is a non-intimidating exploration of the wonderful powers of the mind with an emphasis on the joy of thinking and learning. It contains 100 puzzles, presented in order of mathematical difficulty, that were specifically designed to be both fun and challenging and to promote the idea that becoming a better problem solver can increase the flexibility of one's mind. Answer keys are included. (JRH)
