I'm way younger than the target demographic of this book. The majority of the pop culture references are well before my time but it has been great road trip entertainment for me and my wife.

I'm a bit younger than the demographic for this book, many of the answers for the questions where quite a bit before my time so I never would have figured out the correct answer. However, the ones that I did know, I enjoyed. The book is fun and has all sorts of different games and puzzles and such to keep from getting stale.

The book is a much-expanded version for individuals that includes visual puzzles, word games and trivia questions that are geared to challenging specific parts of a person's brain (memory, cognition, etc). The range of games is amazing. I gave the book to two older siblings (normally ...more

My husband and I are working through these, hoping to stimulate the brain.
Some fun, some stupid and certainly geared to a "certain age group".
