The Bitser Book compiled by Roger Mansfield
The Bitser book is just what the titles suggests, a bit of this and a bit of that. It is much more than a joke book. Yes, it contains jokes and riddles but it also contains tricks, games, tongue twisters, puzzles, optical illusions, quizzes, facts, and some real mind benders. If you like problem solving and thinking through puzzles or just learning some interesting new facts, then you will probably enjoy this book. The text is supported with cartoon pictures. It is an Australian publication.
