Had what I was looking for

by Jerry H on Oct 20, 2011

Was researching window reader number tricks and this was the absolute best resource. Only four pages out of the entire book but they were well worth it for me! Of course, there were many other interesting puzzles for math lovers.


worst condition book EVER!

by jmdjr on Apr 30, 2010

the content was relatively entertaining, but the book felt like it had sat on a shelf in a moist room for half its life, then sat in a barren dry room for th other half. its binding was so stiff it made it hard to open, and when i did finaly get it opened, the spine cracked. also, some of the essays in it had very questionalble logic, it must be because this book was written back in the 80s. if you are considering this book, please look for a version released later than 1990.
