**Important** Solving these Lateral Thinking Puzzles will help train your brain to think laterally using the Random External Stimulus Technique, (REST). This technique is described with detail in my complimentary Lateral Thinking Course. Your development depends on you not looking at the solutions given until you first find a solution on your own. Only once you have found a solution on your own that makes sense should you compare your solution to the one provided. ***Most Important*** Have fun! I have tried to make training your brain entertaining. Thinking laterally means getting out of your comfortable “logic zone”. Solving these lateral thinking puzzles using the REST will be a challenge if you have never practiced before. However, with practice you will start to amaze yourself and others around you with your heightened awareness and intelligence.
