Praise For…

“The variety of puzzles makes you exercise all your problem solving "muscles," and it's why I love this book. If you're looking to expand your puzzle-solving skills at the hands of a puzzle-making master, then this is the book for you. The puzzle explanations and solving strategy tips are especially helpful. I can't wait for the sequel!” —Patrick Min, PhD, creator of and author of numerous Calcudoku and Killer Sudoku puzzle books

“With most puzzle books, I would go straight to solving the puzzles. However, I was curious about the other content and took the time to read the instructions on solving types of puzzles that I'd not been interested in before. Working through them (from easy to more difficult) was a great way to be introduced to puzzles other than crosswords. The quality of the book, from the feel of the cover to the thickness of the pages, shows the publishers understood that this book would be handled often.” —Charles Hutchinson, Technology Director and Digital Platform Consultant

“I was excited to receive my copy of The Ultimate Brain Health Puzzle Book for Adults. As a fan of logic puzzles, I dove straight into the Difficult section, and enjoyed the challenge of several well-crafted Sudoku, Calcudoku, Cryptograms, and Logic Grids. I look forward to having Phil's collection of excellent puzzles as an enjoyable mental diversion for days to come.” —Steven Clontz, Author of Tricky Logic Puzzles for Adults, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, University of South Alabama

“From old favorites like the crossword to fresh takes on new trends (Calcudoku, anyone?), Phil Fraas' collection of puzzles will keep you occupied—and possibly keep you up late trying to solve them! This is the perfect book for anyone who has ever wished for a greater assortment of brain-teasers all in one book.” —Jennifer Martin-Romme, Former Editor at Zenith City News
