Summary: A Distinctive Collection of Problems, Puzzles, and Tricks Rating: 5
About This Book (from the back cover):
Mathematical_Teasers is a collection of some 300 carefully selected, unusual, and above all, challenging mathematical problems, puzzles, riddles, and a number of playing-card and dice tricks for both students and laymen, and especially for those who have a modicum of mathematical ability or a bent for puzzle-solving.
The wide variety of problems in this book range in difficulty, with the more difficult ones in the last three chapters... they can most assuredly be solved by the less-gifted... There are, in addition, many interesting illustrations and lively cartoons that enhance this volume.
