Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Comprising the entire brainteasing spectrum from the silly and quirky to the clever and profound and drawing on classic wisdom from around the world and from as far back as 7,000 B.C., this collection features puzzles via Hebrew mystics, medieval Muslims, Benjamin Franklin, Sun Tsu, and more.

Book News Annotation:

A collection of ancient conundrums and brainteasers done from a historical perspective. From ancient Egypt to the modern day, the author tries to explain how a particular puzzle arose in its particular time. A fascinating book that educates as much as it confuses.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
