Synopsis:
Ready to have your mind boggled? World-famous puzzle master Martin Gardner has provided more than 100 ways to give your little gray cells a workout. These unusual puzzles, many of them original, include palindromes, anagrams, rebuses, and logic puzzles. Their whimsical illustrations contain occasional clues and plenty of humor. If you're stumped, you can consult the back of the book for complete solutions.  Martin Gardner was renowned for his "Mathematical Games" columns in Scientific American, which he wrote for 25 years. Acclaimed by Newsweek as "The Magician of Math," he published more than 70 books on subjects ranging from science and math to poetry and religion.
