Can you beat the Guardian's puzzle-master, Alex Bellos?
Everything is at stake in this compendium of more than 150 ingenious puzzles, selected to reveal the wonderful diversity of brainteasers that have confounded and intrigued solvers for the last thousand years. You'll need to pit your wits against probability problems, wrestle with wordplay, grapple with geometry and scrabble for survival.
Along the way you will discover stories of whip-smart thinkers, eccentric novelists and a poodle with allegedly supernatural powers. You will absorb fascinating and important mathematical ideas. Some solutions will rely on ingenuity, some will challenge you to spot hidden patterns, and others call for extreme rationality.
All books are signed by Alex Bellos and we also have limited stocks of the "verified by Matt" copies which are stamped and signed by Matt Parker, as detailed in the YouTube video below.
