The Puzzler's Dilemma, Hardback Book

The Puzzler's Dilemma Hardback


The Puzzler's Dilemma explores the world of classic logic puzzles, and tells the amazing stories behind them, from the Lighthouse of Alexandria to code-breaking with the Enigma machine.

Here are brain teasers that even maths whizzes have never seen explained by a mind as nimble and playful as Derrick Niederman's, the author of Number Freak and the New York Times's near-genius crossword setter.

A man is found dead in a room, hanging from a rope with only a puddle of water beneath him: What happened?

Just the thing to get your brain working at full speed!
