Something for Everyone
Cons: Only 151 puzzles? We want more! Not every type of puzzle appeals to every person (but those are exactly the ones you should be doing to train your brain!).
Much like the brain is divided into lobes, this book is divided into sections (that just so happen to correspond to those lobes!). There are chapters that will work your temporal lobe (memory), your parietal lobe (word skills), etc. It’s a great all around puzzle book and a fantastic resource for the classroom, as it has puzzles to offer a wide variety of ages and subjects.
