A great new puzzle book compiled by Rob Eastaway and Brian Hobbs
This wonderful collection of 70 puzzles comes from the popular weekly column in New Scientist. There are puzzles that are ideal in the pub, problems based on everyday situations, and eccentric tales – ranging from faulty vending machines to Mexican standoffs and even the Loch Ness Monster. Included in the solutions are the back stories to the puzzles, and commentary on the many related mathematical ideas. An ideal gift for any lover of recreational maths.
