Mensa Mind Challenge
Here are two gigantic new puzzle books of epic proportions from Mensa. There are more than 500 puzzles inside each volume, from cunning numerical conundrums and testing word games to logical teasers, enigmatic lateral thinking tests, and abstract visual problems. Because they don't follow any special pattern, puzzlers never know what fiendish challenge is lying in wait on the next page. They are collected into difficulty bands, from the refreshingly straightforward to the downright devilish. Readers will get some practice in puzzle thinking with the easy section, build mental muscles in the medium section, and gain a fighting chance for the really hard part. No special skills or abilities are needed, just a bit of common sense, some basic numeracy and literacy, the ability to think things through, and the stubborn willpower and determination not to be defeated by a mere puzzle.Mensa was formed in 1946 as an organization for people with a high IQ. The purposes of Mensa are to foster human intelligence, promote intellectual opportunities for its members, and to encourage research into intelligence.
