Publisher Comments:

To solve these 100 puzzles, the only things required are an unclouded mind, nerves of steel, and a grasp of such sentences as: "No animal that does not prefer Beethoven to Mozart ever takes a taxi in Bond Street." They'll provide a challenge to the most sophisticated of puzzle solvers.

Synopsis:

From that endlessly resourceful wit of Fleet Street, Caliban, comes a hundred choice puzzles for the mystification of a deprived American public. If you've never heard of him, Caliban is England's best-known problemist. Caliban's puzzles are unique and challenging to the most sophisticated puzzle solvers, yet no special knowledge is needed--just an unclouded mind and nerves of steel.
