A very amusing and lighthearted book.
The examples of lateral thinking are fiendish and dastardly, but very enjoyable.
There are a few "Oh so that's what it was" and "Why didn't think of that!".
The cartoons are great!
Highly recommended.
I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0008157219, Hardcover)

Devised by devious genius Tom Cutler, The Pilot Who Wore a Dress is a fiendish collection of riddles, mysteries and puzzles to test and tease your brain.

Here’s a simple one to get you started: four bodybuilders are huddling together in the street, under a small ladies’ umbrella, yet after 20 minutes not one of them has got wet. How is this possible?

Separated into original brainteasers and timeless conundrums, plus locked-room head-scratchers and unsolvable crimes borrowed from the very best of detective fiction, this cunning collection will give your lateral thinking muscle a proper workout. See if you can crack the problems by tracing the clues tucked away in each mystery, without sneaking a peak at the answers at the back of the book.

These puzzles are perfect for the squashed commute and after-dinner whoopla alike. They are guaranteed to entertain and delight, whether you’re a wannabe Sherlock Holmes or a budding Jonathan Creek. Side effects may include bafflement, laughter, smugness, and exclamations along the lines of, ‘It’s so obvious once you know the answer.’

Oh, and about those bone-dry bodybuilders – who said it was raining? So obvious!
