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.

Derrick Niederman is the author of Number Freak: From 1 to 200-The Hidden Language of Numbers Revealed, along with several volumes of minimysteries and math puzzle books. He is also the creator of more than twenty crosswords for the Sunday New York Times, and the designer of the mathematical puzzle 36 Cube. He lives in Charleston, South Carolina.
