From the riddles of the ancients to puzzles that perplex the greatest minds of today, The Penguin Book of Puzzles is a glorious compendium of conundrums from throughout history.
These challenges will require all the reader's wits to solve, but range from the easy to the brain-bending and are suitable for novice and veteran puzzlers alike. There is something here to suit every taste, including crosswords, mathematical challenges, word games and logic conundrums, but also some intriguing types of puzzles that have been unearthed from centuries gone by.
"Very challenging puzzles. Some concepts and contexts are difficult to understand, but if you ever feel the need to look at the answer, you'll wonder why you didn't get it sooner!"
"A good buy if you want to try all sorts of old-fashioned puzzles from earlier times, and a very few from recent times"
