"Puzzles Adapted for Workshops and Training" How does one invoke an "Aha" moment? How do you lead people from bewilderment to clarity with simple drawings, letters, and numbers? Lloyd King has perfected the art of puzzles, packing them with a triple punch of outright satisfaction, humor, and surprise. If you are a trainer or workshop leader, these puzzles can be adapted for your use. The puzzles are great for ice breakers for any group or topic or could be used as exercises to support topics such as creativity, humor, or even change management. I have been a trainer and/or workshop leader for over twenty years and am always looking for new ideas and ways to adapt existing materials to my training needs. Let me give an example how you can adapt Lloyd's puzzles as an ice breaker. • Find out the number of participants in your workshop or session. • Prior to your workshop pick out some puzzles from Lloyd King's book. • You can simply redraw the puzzle on paper... More > for each group. • Consider dividing the workshop participants into small groups of 5-6 people. • Offer participants an overview of the exercise. "Each group will be given a puzzle to solve. You have five minutes to work together and solve it. You will need to pick a representative who will describe your process to the entire group." • Allow participants 5 minutes to collaboratively solve the puzzle. • At the end of the time period have the representative from each group come forward one at a time, show the puzzle to the entire group, and describe how they reached the solution. If the group did not solve the puzzle - open the challenge up to the entire group. Provide guidance if necessary. Liz Lowe< Less
"Magical AHA! puzzles" This genial book is one of three books written by the master of puzzles Lloyd King. This one is his latest and maybe the best one, even if it would be rather unfair to draw that conclusion, because every one of his books is very different and unique in it's own way. Lloyd's book "Test Your Creative Thinking" is the one that made me love puzzles. "Amazing AHA Puzzles" contains over 300 puzzles. The remarkable and amazing thing is that every single puzzle is very unique and doesn't resemble any other puzzle in the book. That shows the writers colorful and versatile imagination and creativity. English is not my native language, so in the beginning, I found some of the wordy puzzles rather difficult. The fine thing is that these puzzles will even make you think English and learn English in quite an unique way. Therefore, I would recommend Lloyd King's books even to those who want to learn English and be better at English. The book's...

" I warmly recommend this book." When I read Lloyd King's book, Amazing "Aha!" Puzzles, I had the impression it's one of the best puzzle books ever written. There are very few books involving lateral thinking - for sure, this one does. Lloyd, founder of the VINCI Society, has an incredibly high imagination and creativity. He perfectly summarises his views in his article "Creative thinking" at http://www.ahapuzzles.com/creative_thinking_1.htm.
"Excellent puzzle book for any puzzle lover" I've been buying puzzle books for over 25 years, and finally I feel I've spent good money with Lloyd King's "AHA" puzzle book. On days that I had a spare half hour in my day to just sit back, relax and enjoy "ME" time, I would pick this book to challenge my brain, flex it, and laugh along with it. Once this puzzle book is finished, I intend to buy his other book at Amazon, "Test Your Creative Thinking", because I just can't get enough. Well done!! P.S. Personal comment. If you trash this book, you're a silly, silly person! :)
