For the first time in the Pocket Posh series we offer lateral-thinking puzzles, the popular conundrums that train you to think outside the box.

Lateral thinking means sideways thinking. There is more than one way of looking at a problem, and through these puzzles, you can train your brain to think differently.  Lateral thinking is a set of strategies for thinking in new directions.  The 50 puzzles in this Pocket Posh collection will help you think laterally to find new ways to solve problems, free up rigid thought patterns, and avoid getting stuck.

How and why do we see things in a particular way? Why do we miss things? How do we shift perspective? As you work through these puzzles, you'll be training your brain to see things laterally—or sideways.
