5 Stars +!
Wow! What a book! This is the epitome of ALL other visual Puzzle Books! No other visional puzzle book can stand up to this book! The quality of this book outshines ANY other puzzle book I have seen in any bookstore! The Grabarchuk Family was kind enough to mail this book to me for review, and boy, am I thankful! I've been having a ball!
Size: 8 1/2 x 11 - the exact size of a piece of paper
Quality of the paper used for pages: Extra HIGH Quality! Glossy, Beautiful, thick, and can be used over and over again and again. Will NOT yellow with time at all. Imagine about 5 pages of a magazine for the thickness of ONE PAGE! 
Thickness of the book itself: 3/4"
Weight: I don't know
Amount of puzzles on a page: Varies due to the sizes of the puzzles. Average would be about 5 puzzles per page.
Number of pages: 239.  But, wait! The first 150 pages are pure puzzles to solve. The next set of pages, from page 151 to 210 are the answers to the puzzles! Yes! Answers! You don't always get answers to all puzzle books that are out there. 
The next set of pages 211 - 239 are Super Thick One-Sided Card Stock Paper of puzzles you cut out to put together! These are hands on puzzles from the book for quite a few puzzles!
I have played and played and played with these puzzles and have had a LOT of fun! These puzzles really do help to develop, sharpen and KEEP your perceptual skills. I started wondering why are there puzzle books out there like this? So I did some research online to find out "what" and "why" we should do these puzzles, besides having fun. I know there MUST be some reason why. What I learned was exactly what I just wrote. These types of visual puzzles really do help us to develop, sharpen and KEEP our perceptual skills. In my research, I also learned that by age 22 our brain 'peaks', and by as little as age 27, we start to forget, or lose our perceptual skills. Here is a blog, I believe, that talks about "Visual Skills" and their importance not only for children, but for adults, too. Check it out!  I've also read that the game Tetris, with moderate difficulty, is one of the BEST "video" games out there for visual perceptual games - "video style". I am stressing 'video' games. Those are completely different than this book. Tetris is repetitive, too, so there is also somewhat of an addiction factor to the game, too. (I would find my own mother sneaking in the bathroom to play Tetris!) There is a LOT of great reasons as to 'why' you should play these games in this book! Google it yourself! You'll see!  
Here I am going to insert the photo/LINK from Amazon so you can go to Amazon and see this book for yourself! It's amazing! It says: "Click to Look Inside". DO IT! You get to look at 'almost' ALL the puzzles in this book! Some are not included, but for the most part, you get to see them. NO! You don't get the answers! Sorry!  
The regular price of this book is $14.97, give or take Amazon's price adjustments, but NOW IT'S ON SALE!!! Sale price: $5.97! Wow! You've GOT to get this book! It's cheaper than a puzzle magazine you could buy at a store! Plus, the quality does NOT compare.
Grab this book! Enjoy!
