Awareness helps with most diseases in identifying the onset and most diseases are easy to cure or you can slow down the effects if you catch them early. Knowing the 10 Warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease is vital to being diagnosed early and receiving the best help and care possible.
The Big Brain Puzzle Book is filled with brainteasers and puzzles created by internationally-syndicated puzzle writer, Terry Stickels. Terry is well known for his three columns: “Frame Games,” published in USA Weekend magazine; “Stickelers,” featured in more than 200 newspapers daily, and he is also a featured puzzle columnist for London’s largest newspaper, The Guardian.
You can actually decrease your chances of developing this progressive and fatal disease (Alzheimer’s) by simply increasing your brain activity with a puzzle book like The Big Brain Puzzle Book. But you can just enjoy it too and not even think of the help you are giving yourself by keeping your mind active. I love brainteasers. I just love them. I love Sudoku and just puzzles. I love mysteries and suspense and my brain is weird. I get a huge high by solving things. Even just how to pack a box, or suitcase is exciting to me.
The puzzle book is categorized into three progressive levels:
- Level 1 – Basic logic reasoning, visual and wordplay games will help kick start neurons. Frame games, like descrambling the letters “Hsilgne” to make “Shingle,” are found throughout this section.
- Level 2 – Readers are encouraged to work through more challenging puzzles with friends and family. This section incorporates out-of-the-box trivia questions like knowing which state besides Missouri is bordered by eight states.
- Level 3 – Complete higher level mathematical equations, wordplay and spatial and logical reasoning games. Advanced exercises, like finding the next fraction in a sequence and mind-bending word problems, come into play.

I was sent a copy of this book to review and I have looked at it and played with it in my head and now I am going to donate it. I think it will make a great Christmas Present and that’s why it has made my Christmas guide.
