5.0 étoiles sur 5Nice one Mensa!12 décembre 2003
Par Paul Dermot - Publié sur Amazon.com
I found this on Mensa's best books list and so ordered it through this site. It only took a few days and since it arrived I have very much enjoyed working my way through the puzzles. They're solvable but some of them still need a bit of thought. And looking at the ones at the end (which I've yet to reach), some of those jobs around the house are gonna have to wait a while!

Enjoy logic puzzles written with a comic edge. They increase in difficulty as the book goes along, but none are impossible. Recommended for anyone who enjoys doing logic puzzles.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Not for everybody4 juillet 2013
Par Birck - Publié sur Amazon.com
These puzzles are for logicians. For anyone who isn't prepared to parse out precisely what each clue does or doesn't tell the reader about the puzzle, they will be quite difficult. If the NYT crossword puzzles are an 8, these are an 11. They are to the usual run of puzzles as Scientific American or Science is to Popular Science Magazine. So if the reader is looking for mental exercises that tax but do not baffle, look elsewhere. I guess that makes the book "good", in that the contents is genuinely difficult, and well-presented-e.g., the answers to successive puzzles are not on successive pages in the back, but spread around so that the answer to one puzzle is not adjacent to the answer to the next. But for someone simply trying to stave off dementia or recover from a stroke, these can be discouraging.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Some of the best logic puzzles ever created23 août 2009
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
While logic puzzles have a general formula, if you love them, your appetite can never be satiated. The 53 puzzles in this collection are among the best of the genre, sure to challenge your brain cells to their maximum rate of firing. I found them typical yet challenging as I worked through them, as is nearly always the case; the making of a table is essential to arriving at the solution.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Great selection with entertaining stories25 juin 2012
Par Jaime Andrews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Each puzzle begins with a short narrative. It sets the scene, and engages the imagination. Then the problem is described, often accompanied by a table, list, diagram, or illustration. Your first challenge is always to find the basic logic problem underlying the illustrative detail. You have to see the problem as an abstraction. Then you need to figure out the best way of solving it. So, that's how the puzzles work. The selection of puzzles is good, and the difficulty increases with each puzzle. So, who would be interested in this book? Anyone who loves brain teasers and logic puzzles, really. Also, anyone preparing for a Mensa competition ought to check this book out, as well. Though sometimes the puzzles seem more like riddles than genuine problems to solve. Those who enjoy the word play aspect of puzzles, will enjoy THE Book of Word Games: Parlett's Guide to 150 Great and Quick-to-Learn Word Games.
