Gardner's Aha. Of the puzzles I hadn't seen, I was able to solve a few in my head, and a fair number were straightforward with pencil and paper. Many, however, require a profound insight of the "wouldn't get that in a million years" variety—one that I didn't feel at all ashamed for not finding.

Regardless of the difficulty, the puzzles in this book are fair tests of intellect for anyone with a good grasp of algebra and geometry. There are no cheap shots that require an unreasonable, universe-spanning leap of logic like you find in some "mindbender" puzzle collections. You know, the kind that expect you to postulate the existence of a hedgehog wearing a leather skirt at the side of the road, or something even less likely, and then make you feel stupid when you give up in disgust.

Those aren't puzzles—they're mind-reading exercises. I hate that shit. Jan 06, Brian marked it as currently-puzzling Shelves: puzzles. January Finally figured out puzzle number three! Stubbornly refused to continue and obviously not going to peek at the answer But can continue puzzling finally! Jun 11, The5Sharks Gaming rated it really liked it. I find this book very interesting because this book allows me to think out out of the box and it exercises my brain and to think of better strategies to how to solve the puzzles.

It is a very good book because I love math puzzles and when I solve a puzzle, I have a sense of achievement. Helps keep the gray matter fresh, With out the past there is no future to look forward too. Studying these things are fun. Tired of writing now.

This book became my go to time filler during downtime at my job. I loved it! Great way to keep your mind sharp and have fun while doing so.

May 07, Riju Ganguly rated it really liked it. The only reason behind me dropping a star from the rating has to do with the difficult nature of several problems. Logic puzzles as well as mathematical games are interesting as long as attempting them involves fun and mental alacrity. For grown ups who have some time to indulge themselves and who might like to remove some of the ru The only reason behind me dropping a star from the rating has to do with the difficult nature of several problems.

For grown ups who have some time to indulge themselves and who might like to remove some of the rust from the cerebral areas, this book is enjoyable. Dec 29, Scott rated it liked it. These were considerably more advanced than some other Dover collections of Gardner's puzzles - in fact, most of them would require fairly advanced math skills. While I enjoyed the solutions, for the vast majority I didn't have a prayer of solving them on my own.

May 20, Vickie rated it really liked it. The problem with this, of course, is that it's a translation of words that are meant to be puzzling. As a result, many are not written in such a way that the parameters of the problems are clear.

Some assumptions have to be made to proceed with solving. Sep 12, Lynn rated it it was amazing. Just something I like to do in my spare time. Apr 23, Suraj Kumar rated it it was amazing. View 1 comment. May 07, Rejeev Divakaran rated it really liked it Shelves: mathematics , science , puzzles.

Martin Gardner's Puzzle Books

The maestro of recreational maths was born years ago today. Here we celebrate his birthday with eight of his most celebrated puzzles. A few years before he died, aged 95 in , I interviewed Martin Gardner at his home in Norman, Oklahoma. Gardner was a journalist, a novelist, a magician, a philosopher and one of the earliest public debunkers of pseudoscience. Yet he was probably best known — and most loved — for popularising mathematical puzzles. In his monthly column Mathematical Games, which he wrote in Scientific American between the s and the s, he introduced many brainteasers as well as giving old classics new twists.

Martin was 95 years old when he died, and had written 70 or 80 books during his long lifetime as an author. Martin's first Dover books were published in and Mathematics, Magic and Mystery, one of the first popular books on the intellectual excitement of mathematics to reach a wide audience, and Fads and Fallacies in the Name of Science, certainly one of the first popular books to cast a devastatingly skeptical eye on the claims of pseudoscience and the many guises in which the modern world has given rise to it. Both of these pioneering books are still in print with Dover today along with more than a dozen other titles of Martin's books.

In , he told John Tierney New York Times , "The number of puzzles I've invented you can count on your fingers," which was probably an underestimate, but his observation is at least partially true. He generally credited the inventors and true sources of the wonders he wrote about, when known. Martin published over 40 collections of puzzles in the year period from to Many of the earlier volumes resurfaced decades later thanks to new publishers, often updated, and under new titles. The great majority of the puzzles which Martin wrote about were logical, mathematical or scientific in some way, but he also loved visual and wordplay challenges.

A thin stream of fuel came out to mix with the oil below. The pressure of the wooden cudgel eased and she exhaled in relief, Kerlew set out for the shape in the distance. I hated clearing an area, as if dipped in acid. He backed into the larger duct and began his return trip?

Назад, или я сломаю… Рукоятка револьвера, разрезая воздух, с силой опустилась ему на затылок. Сьюзан высвободилась из рук обмякшего Хейла, не понимая, что произошло.

Сьюзан пролистала справочник и нашла нужный список. 19: ОШИБКА В СИСТЕМНОМ РАЗДЕЛЕ 20: СКАЧОК НАПРЯЖЕНИЯ 21: СБОЙ СИСТЕМЫ ХРАНЕНИЯ ДАННЫХ Наконец она дошла до пункта 22 и, замерев, долго всматривалась в написанное. Потом, озадаченная, снова взглянула на монитор. КОД ОШИБКИ 22 Сьюзан нахмурилась и снова посмотрела в справочник.

Но Сьюзан не желала иметь с ним никакого дела. И, что, на взгляд Хейла, было еще хуже, влюбилась в университетского профессора, который к тому же зарабатывал сущие гроши. Очень жаль, если она истратит свой превосходный генетический заряд, произведя потомство от этого выродка, - а ведь могла бы предпочесть его, Грега.

Постучите тихонько. Я найду свободную комнату и покажу вам Испанию с такой стороны, что вам будет что вспомнить, - И она сладко причмокнула губами. Беккер изобразил улыбку.

Сомнений в том, кого именно обвиняет Чатрукьян, не. Единственный терминал в шифровалке, с которого разрешалось обходить фильтры Сквозь строй, принадлежал Стратмору.
