Summary: Outstanding book
This is an outstanding book that I have used in my classes for years and years. It has a wealth of material that is of a quality far above
the usual compendiums of games that you usually see. Great games, challenges, tricks, etc. that you will love using with your students, and
the range is from early grades on up to at least junior high and sometimes beyond.
Great stuff. While you're at it, buy an extra copy or two for your colleagues; this is one book you're going to love and use often.

Erwin Brecher, "The Ultimate Book of Puzzles, Mathematical Diversions, and Brainteasers: A Definitive Collection of the Best Puzzles Ever Devised
Long-time puzzle buffs have yearned for a one-volume collection of the best brain-twisters ever devised. Here are 360 carefully constructed exercises that use words, numbers, and diagrams to test logic, numeracy geometry, physics, intuition, common sense, and imagination.
Best Mathematics Puzzles
There is little that I need say by way of introduction to this
collection of puzzles. They are all strictly "mathematical,"
though the mathematical knowledge necessary for solving
them is, in all but a handful of cases, elementary. That is
because these puzzles have all been published serially in
various newspapers and magazines, and their appeal would be
negligible if their solution demanded advanced mathematics.
They appear here, with their original wording unchanged,
except that, where puzzles involve monetary calculations,
I have converted pounds, shillings, and pennies into dollars
and cents. The factual basis of many of these puzzles is derived
from various games, e.g., contract bridge. A good many are
based on Britain's national game: association football
("soccer"). You don't need to know this game to tackle the
puzzles based on it. Its scoring is simplicity itself: each side,
if it scores at all, merely scores one, two, or more goals.

Pierre Berloquin, "The Garden of the Sphinx: 150 Challenging and Instructive Puzzles"
These mathematical puzzles have appeared in the newspaper
Le Monde during the past few years. A number of readers have
responded to the challenge by offering not only original solu-
tions and modes of attack but also by stating new problems
related to those proposed. A dialogue was thus initiated in
which my problems or those I reproduced from the literature
generated a new set by stimulating the minds of my corre-
spondents. This book presents a collection resulting from the
101 Puzzles in Thought and Logic
Solve murder problems and robberies, see which fishermen are liars and how a blind man can identify color — purely by reasoning! Hours of mind-strengthening entertainment.
