Are you one of the millions of people throughout the world that are fascinated by puzzles, conundrums and brain teasers? If so then you will want this collection of amusing twisters from Barry Clarke. Based on his extensive experience of writing for the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Times and New Scientist, Clarke has gathered together a variety of posers, together with hints and full solutions. Several examples of a brand new type of puzzle, The Word Bandit, are included as well. The whole gamut of others from logical and liar problems through to digital deletions are included. The puzzles themselves require no special mathematical knowledge, though for those in the 'Advanced' section even seasoned solvers will need to work pretty hard to find the answer. There is something for everyone here; puzzles for children, for the family, for members of Mensa, but above all Puzzles for Pleasure.
