Can You Solve My Problems?

A Casebook of Ingenious, Perplexing and Totally Satisfying Puzzles
Alex Bellos

Description

Can You Solve My Problems? is not just a random list of skull-warping brain-teasers, but rather a skilfully curated anthology of puzzles.

A good puzzle is ingenious, frustrating and a-ha!-inducing. In this entertaining and utterly addictive book, the author will challenge you to pit your wits against pangrams, hidatos, chessboard puzzles and a Singaporean schoolchild's maths paper. Piece of cake, right? Only if you know the scientific method for cutting cake correctly.

Organised from easy-peasy to ninja level with stories of puzzle mysteries, histories and scandals along the way.
