What doesn’t fit and why? Nationals, Blackhawks, Rays, Astros. Not so tough. ANSWER? Blackhawks, because the other teams play Major League Baseball, but the Chicago Blackhawks play in the... More > National Hockey League. OK, try this one: cucumber, tomato, radish, avocado. A little harder, right? ANSWER? Radish, because the others are botanical fruits (they have seeds) that we treat as culinary vegetables, but a seedless radish is a root vegetable. But most of the mind-puzzlers in this fun book don’t test your knowledge of special-area facts or trivia—your “vertical thinking.” Nope. Most of the puzzles in this book test what Edward de Bono calls “lateral thinking”: your ability to think creatively—to leap outside the box. Take this example: poker, chess, skate, score. ANSWER? You'll have to get the book! ARCHITECT, PAINTER, AND WRITER JEF7REY HILDNER AKA ELIOT PLUM earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Princeton University.< Less
