Review
'\"Intended for puzzle enthusiasts, this book presents a comprehensive report on what is known about flexagons... Pook\'s book is far more comprehensive than other books in treating general flexagons.\" Mathematics Teacher'
Review
'\"Flexagons Inside Out is a thorough and comprehensible work on the mathematical structure of flexagons...The author intended the material in this book to be at the recreational mathematics level, and he certainly succeeds in his goal. There is ample mathematical content to satisfy readers at nearly any level, however Pook also keeps the text readable and easy to follow.\"
