Retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson wrote a new book, the , to help people practice their observation and analysis skills. (You may remember him as the author of the New York Times best seller 100 Deadly Skills.)

The numbers beside each row and column tell you how many tents are in that row or column. Can you find all the tents? When you’re ready to see the answer, click here.
