Overview

Calling all puzzlers…

From mathematics to word puzzles, from logic to lateral thinking, veteran puzzle maker Derrick Niederman delights in tackling the trickiest brainteasers in a new way. Among the old chestnuts he cracks wide open are the following classics:

Knights and knaves
The monk and the mountain
The dominoes and the chessboard
The unexpected hanging
The Tower of Hanoi

Using real-world analogies, infectious humor, and a fresh approach, this deceptively simple volume will challenge, amuse, enlighten, and surprise even the most experienced puzzle solver.
