Unbelievably Compelling. Strange. Fun.

My friend is a school teacher and uses this book to get her students to think. It's a good puzzle book for all ages. Youngsters can attack some of the easier problems. Adults can try to tackle some of the harder problems. The fantastic alien artwork makes the book of special interest. Anyone who buys this mind-shattering book is sure to change the way they think about the people with whom we share this planet. Wild! My favorite puzzle is called "Survival on Arcturus." Try it.


The Alien IQ Test was fascinating reading. I especially liked some of the puzzles toward the end dealing with art and human emotion!
