Lloyd King is a puzzle designer living in the UK. King specialises in creating novel and unusual puzzles with "Aha!" answers. Most of his puzzles require lateral and "outside the box" thinking. Many lateral thinking puzzles are open ended, with numerous possible correct answers, but King strives to create puzzles with a single answer, which should become obvious with the illuminating "Aha!" moment on discovering the solution to a puzzle.

PREFACE The puzzles in this book have been designed to be both amusing and challenging. At first glance you may find that some look a bit daunting, but, rest assured, you do not need any specialist knowledge to solve them. If you approach them in the right way, using lateral thinking and by being open to new, creative solutions, you will find that you come up with many, if not all, of the correct answers.

I hated this book when I owned it in high school... I just looked at it years later; I simply didn't have the patience or the intelligence to solve the puzzles back then, so I would have given this book a low review. Now that years have passed, I find the puzzles really creative and challenging... In fact, I would give this book an 'A' for its creativity... I can proudly say that years later, the puzzles still push me to my limits, but I can solve about half of them - a real accomplishment, given that I couldn't solve a single one when I originally purchased the book!

This book, as well as Lloyd's other book "Test Your Creative Thinking" have stimulated several levels of creativity and taken my visualization skills to an all-new depth of dimension. Those interested in Lloyd's work should highly consider checking out his web-site. He has put some puzzles on there, as well. [...]
This book contains refreshingly new and and innovative/ingenuitive puzzles. These aren't your average, rehashed cliché's found in most like-minded books out there. I have owned several puzzle books in my time and none other can bear comparison to the unequivocal amount of wit and dexterity that Lloyd provides. Not only are his puzzles a bit of a mental tilt-a-whirl, but they are also *Fun*!

The back of the book says "These baffling challenges will keep you perplexed for hours." Actually, they will leave you perplexed permanently since they are perplexing even when you give up and look at the solution.

They might be intended to help you think outside the box, but they do that by redefining the box -- by a sort of "cheating." It's as though the author is determined that you will fail - and will mislead you in order to ensure your failure.

Take Puzzle 9, CAT, for an example. A sketchy outline of a cat is shown, drawn with little sticks, in a walking position facing the left side of the page. You are instructed to move five of the little sticks to change the drawing "to leave another cat going in the opposite direction." You could spend an hour trying to redraw the cat to face right by repositioning just five sticks. It's not going to happen. Is it on some level amusing to mislead the people you are instructing? Because that's what this is. The solution shows the sticks moved so that they spell out the word CAT. The c is small and at the top right, the A lower, and the T lower than the A. So you could say that the word CAT is going in a different direction. But it's certainly not going in the "opposite" direction, as the instructions stated.

So when you look at the solutions, you don't think, "Wow, why didn't I think of that!" you think, "That's not fair!!" An exercise in frustration, not IQ, is what you get.

Go to any bookstore, take a puzzle book from the shelf, and browse through the pages. Of all the puzzles in the book you see in front of you, how many of them are derivatives of previously published material? The answer's simple - most of them. Blandness and repetition can be found on bookshelves in abundance. In contrast, Mr King's work is full of originality and this fact alone deserves celebration. He has done more than most to develop the closed lateral puzzle, the form where all necessary information is given. Their difficulty often lies in there being only a single clue, sometimes only in the title, and this is bound to stretch one's powers of perception and interpretation. If, as a result, the solution is beyond your reach, don't feel cheated or defeated. Just look in the back of the book and try to see it as a work of art - because quite a lot of it is.
