Description
From mathematics to word puzzles, and from logic to lateral thinking, veteran puzzle maker Derrick Niederman delights in tackling the trickiest brainteasers. Among the old standards he examines are Knights and Knaves, the Monk and the Mountain, and the Unexpected Hanging, as well as giving a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a crossword puzzle. In his survey of how we contend with puzzles of logic, Nierderman offers examples culled from game shows, tennis, philosophy, TV westerns, and Agatha Christie novels.
