Cover design for Learn to Think Using Riddles, Brain Teasers, and Wordplay by Patrick King
Patrick King is an expert in oral communication and emotional interaction. His book teaches to ask the right questions to get the right answers, solve problems easily and think more clearly in general. The author invites everyone to test their level of education with riddles and puzzles that challenge to think outside the box. The book tells how to think “backwards,” “forwards” and “sideways,” for example by starting with conclusions and looking for causes. The book greatly confuses the reader, but ultimately improves their thinking skills by literally pulling them into mental work.
On the cover of the book the history’s most famous puzzle expert is trying to solve the mystery of the dancing men with non-trivial deductive reasoning.
