Yiddishe Kop: The Book of Jewish Brain Teasers Vol. 1 offers 52 challenging lateral thinking puzzles with a Jewish bent. The term "lateral thinking" was coined by Edward de Bono to describe how one solves a problem creatively by seeing it from different angles. "Yiddishe kop" refers to a Jewish logic which may have developed from traditional Torah study. Just as the Torah is compared to a diamond with 70 facets, allowing one to learn different lessons from phrases, words or even letters if viewed from the proper angle, the solutions to these puzzles may hinge on a similar type of detail.
True to Jewish form, the puzzles are designed to make you ask good questions!
Play by yourself (using the clues) or with a group. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
