Summary

Enjoy figuring out creative solutions to real-world problems that have led to important inventions, discoveries, and innovations throughout history!

The problems in this audiobook are related to erudition in fundamental areas - nature, technology, business, science, how things work, or why things are made in a certain way. But, unlike in trivia or jeopardy, you most probably do not know the answer. Instead, logic, out-of-the-box thinking, or intuition leap should be added to your knowledge to puzzle out the correct solution.

Experience walking in the footsteps of discoverers, inventors, and innovators through taking on real-world problems that challenge you to tap into lateral thinking and creativity.

This audiobook contains:

  • Over 241 engaging problems across 12 fascinating topics: ingenious inventions, business innovations, nature and science, historical happenings, folk wisdom from different cultures around the world, and many more.
  • All problems have additional hints, which make it much easier to brainstorm.
  • Answers have explanations, going beyond fun facts, providing more insight and subject matter knowledge.
  • Chapters are arranged by difficulty and subject, so you have complete control over how you play.
  • An easy-to-navigate format, helping you keep the fun going and avoid accidentally stumbling upon answers.
  • All content is family-friendly and is ideal for adults and advanced teenagers. 

Children are often very good at ideation (idea generation) and solving problems creatively. Most stumpers of this audiobook can be used as a mind game regardless of age, education, or background. Check inside for a free bonus! 

Sharpen your logic, enhance your creativity, and develop your lateral thinking skills, all while having fun and learning more about the world around you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I feel challenged in an excellent way!

I learned a lot from this audiobook. Everything was narrated so well; I was able to understand everything.

My abilities to think from many different perspectives have been sufficiently challenged.

Haha!

Over ten subjects are covered in this audiobook, so most people can find something they like.

Thanks to this audiobook, I've gotten better at solving problems.

That's what I'd like to think, at least.

There's nothing typical about this trivia in the audio. But, in fact, it is far from trivial.

It's not easy to answer these questions. It takes knowledge of a wide range of topics. So it's great that each trivia question has a story behind it and not just a Q & A book.

But that is the beauty of this audiobook; so many are nothing like this. So I was made up.

Plus, it was fun, and it needs to be to learn, right?

This audiobook is well organised; it is arranged by difficulty and covers many topics.

There are plenty of fascinating facts that can be learned about in a fun way by anyone looking to increase their general knowledge.

This is my new gift suggestion!

Clever & Witty Book

I found the puzzles in this book are not only interesting and challenging but educational too. I feel this book is suitable for all knowledge levels and ages. It definitely helped build some brain muscle. There is an array of interesting topics and I like that you are given a hint to the teasers,

Such a fun book!

This book was so entertaining! I loved listening to it in the car while I drove. There are so many problems to solve with a wide range of topics. I really did learn a lot. I liked how not only was their answers, but there were also explanations to the problems to give a better understanding of the questions being asked.

Super fun activity guide

Though this title certainly qualifies as an audiobook, it’s also something else: a really fun activity guide. It jumps through hundreds (okay, 241) of fun questions that range from easy to extra challenging and gives you and/or your loved ones something exciting and engaging to do on a lazy or rainy day.

The narrator did a great job as well, which made it even more appealing. I especially liked the little sound effect that played before each answer. It kept me coming back for more. My only slight criticism is that I felt as though the questions were more like trivia questions than brain teasers — although that didn’t detract from the amount of fun we had with it.

That minor criticism aside, this one is definitely worth grabbing and listening to. That is, as if “listening to” it really even does it justice. To get the full effect, you really need to sit down and strap in for a night of excitement and laughs … yet that’s also precisely what makes it so enjoyable!

Amazingly Good

I took my time to go through this very detailed ebook. It is jam-packed with interesting information spanning a range of themes. I love to learn about inventions so I particularly enjoyed that section. Then I listened to the section entitled "hink different" and it was even more amazing.

This is an invaluable resource - a wonderful compilation of useful information; makes me feel quite smart after all that listening.

A work for inquisitive people

A very comprehensive work with an extraordinarily large number of interesting tidbits of knowledge. The structure with the quiz question and the associated resolution is ditaktisch well chosen. The narration is also very positive and highly professional! However, sometimes I would have preferred to learn more about the individual topics. Also, the incessant jingle noise was quite annoying after a while. This could be made a little more varied. I have learned a lot and will certainly have to browse one or the other chapter again, because I have overheard a lot in the large amount of information.
