Book Review: Puzzle Baron's Sudoku & Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2 + The Complete Idiots Guide to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2

Monday, June 4, 2012

Scientific studies have shown that doing puzzle games keeps the mind sharp and wards off dementia. The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2, Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku and Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2 are three brain-challenging books that include a variety of puzzles for beginner through expert solvers. Here are my thoughts on each book...

The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2 ReviewThe Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2
This nifty puzzle book contains 100 colorful photo puzzles--spot the differences, which picture doesn't match, and put the picture back together on a degree of difficulty scale of easy to advanced. The photographs are eye-popping and the captions are witty. As for the puzzles, I must admit that I found the easy ones a bit challenging, but practice makes perfect! You really need a sharp eye to solve these!

Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku ReviewPuzzle Baron’s Sudoku
This volume of 400 never-before-published sudoku puzzles is an enthusiast's dream! Whether you are a novice to the devilish 9x9 square or a fiend, you will find plenty of brain-teasing action this book that translates into hours of fun. I dare you not to become addicted.


Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2 ReviewPuzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2
I consider myself a logic puzzle nerd, but the deduction types are my least favorite. If you enjoy using your powers of deductive reasoning for fun, if your favorite TV show is The Big Bang Theory, then this book of 200 logic grid puzzles is for you! Pick up a copy for a student who is studying for the GMAT or LSAT. These puzzles are perfect preparation!

The best part of all these books is that they each have an answer key in the back so you can check your work or get a little help if you get stuck.

Buy It: The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Picture Puzzles, Vol. 2 ($10.95), Puzzle Baron’s Sudoku ($9.95) and Puzzle Baron’s Logic Puzzles, Vol. 2 ($14.95) are available at all major bookstores and online. It makes a great gift!

I love these things. The Mr and I read a word quiz book every night before we go to bed. Lame, I know, but true.

I love puzzles! They are especially great for passing the time on long plane rides.

I LOVE puzzles...but I find these kind a little frustrating. The Sudoku? Forget it. And logic puzzles? They remind me of prepping for the LSAT...and those weren;t fun times.

However, it doesn't stop me from doing puzzles obsessively. LOL.

I'm afraid that doing Logic or Sudoku puzzles, would make my head explode!
