It has some good information and interesting insights, though it is not a smooth, engaging read. Danesi is a brilliant scholar and his passion for the topic shines through. If you want data, diagrams, delineation and a splash of insight on why we puzzle, this is a good book to include in a survey of top books in the field.

Weak points: insufficient coverage of the puzzle development industry since the s; author too biased in proving the main idea--defines puzzles as, essentially, all the quizzes we use for education purposes; some trivial examples are explained in too much detail, even towards the end of the book] Jun 29, Captain Curmudgeon rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction. Good bibliography. The concept of the book was interesting, unfortunately the writing style left much to be desired.
