These innovative, witty, and utterly outrageous brainbusters engage your reasoning power while honing your problem-solving skills.

Don’t worry—we’ve added a special "Solutions" section that gives a detailed answer to each brainbuster. This ingenious volume offers more than 180 puzzlers including:

  • An archaeologist walking along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea finds an old Roman coin. On one side is the face of Julius Caesar and the date is 44 BC. On the other side is an olive tree. The archaeologist says, " The coin is counterfeit." How does she know?
  • What is the probability that if you cut a straight stick at two arbitrary places, you can make a triangle with the three pieces?
  • At Disney World a canal joining two lakes passes over a road on an aqueduct. When a boat goes across, does it increase the load on the aqueduct?
