About the book:
Think you’re pretty smart? Turn the pages to play your moves and watch as Tic Tac Tome beats you forward, backward, and diagonally. Tic Tac Tome features more than 1,400 pages, hundreds of draws and losses, and just one way for a clever reader to win. No apps, batteries, or touch screens required—Tic Tac Tome is powered by good old-fashioned book smarts. It’s deceptively simple, endlessly addictive, and (nearly) impossible to defeat. Complete with introduction and FAQs for the unfamiliar and unsure, Tic Tac Tome is the smartest book you’ll ever cross.

My thoughts:
FRUSTRATION! That is the first word that pops into my head. The second word is fun. I really enjoyed this book, even though I never won a single game of tic tac toe. This book is the greatest coffee table book ever made. It is seriously hilarious and entertaining to play around with. I brought this to work and all my students played it as well- of course none of them were able to beat the book either, but we did have a blast trying. The book is definitely smarter than everyone who has encountered it so far. This book is a must-have for everyone who ever played tic tac toe as a kid (which is basically everyone). Also, I think this would be the best gift for that hard-to-buy-for buddy of yours. I know I would love to have this gifted to me!
