be open-minded, flexible, and creative

I was listening to Science Friday on NPR... and I learned about "One Minute Mysteries" by Eric and Natalie Yoder.

The books look fun and engaging. 

While searching One Minute Mysteries, I stumbled upon this cool website:  Check out the Case Files to view sample puzzles.

My favorite quote:
"When solving these puzzles, throw out all your assumptions about what is going on, and of course, be open-minded, flexible, and creative."
